To be eligible for QDWI, an individual must meet the following criteria:
The program pays for the individual's Part A premium, which is a cost that is usually covered by Social Security. The program is designed to help people who are working and earning a salary, but still cannot afford to pay for the full cost of their Medicare Part A premium.
Individuals who are eligible for QDWI can apply through the Social Security Administration (SSA) and their state Medicaid agency. It's important to note that the QDWI program is only available in certain states, and the eligibility rules and benefits can vary by state.
