What are old age and survivor’s health insurance?

Old Age and Survivors Health Insurance (OASHI) is a health insurance program that provides benefits to eligible individuals aged 65 or older or survivors of a deceased insured. The program helps pay for medical expenses, including doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription drugs.

To be eligible for OASHI and other Medicaid benefits, you must meet specific financial and non-financial requirements.

– You must be a resident of the state where you apply for OASHI – there are no exceptions. If you ever move to another state, even for a short time, you will lose your eligibility for OASHI and any other type of SSI or Medicaid.

– You must be a U.S. citizen or meet specific immigration requirements.

– Your income and resources must fall below certain limits. The lower your income and resources, the more likely you will be eligible for benefits.

Some of these financial requirements are based on your age. For example, as of January 1, 2019, if you are between 65 and 74 years old, your income cannot exceed $2,313 per month ($27,756 per year). If you are 75 or older, your payment cannot exceed $2,566 per month ($30,792 per year).

The amount of money you have in assets also affects whether you can OASHI benefits. As of January 1, 2019, if you are 65 or older, your total countable assets cannot exceed $2,000. If you are between 18 and 64, your countable assets cannot exceed $5,150.

Nonfinancial requirements are also used to determine eligibility for OASHI benefits. These include whether you have a medical condition that has lasted for at least 30 days (called a “determining disability”), whether you need help with ADLs or IADLs (see below) and age-related factors such as being blind or disabled.

If individuals meet these requirements, they may be eligible for Medicare which is usually linked to OASHI coverage.

To be eligible for Medicare part A (Hospital Insurance), you must meet one of the following criteria:

– You are age 65 or older and have received OASHI for at least five years. This is called your “Medicare qualifying period.”

As of January 1, 2018, individuals who received OASDI benefits can qualify for Medicare on a new basis – having had a disability determination from the Social Security Administration (SSA). To be eligible under this provision, an individual must have had SSA determine that they had a disabling impairment that it did not expect to improve within 12 months.

As of January 1, 2018, all disabled or blind recipients will receive medical insurance from SSA unless they decline it in writing. However, if the recipient already has other Medicare insurance, they will not qualify for additional coverage through SSA.

– You or your spouse paid Medicare taxes while working, and you are age 65 or older. As of January 1, 2018, this category includes individuals who have a disability determination from the Social Security Administration, provided it is not expected to improve within 12 months.

– You were covered by Medicare part A when you received OASHI benefits but lost eligibility because you returned to work. This period can last up to 36 months as long as the reason that you returned to work was due to a disabling impairment that has been removed.

It must be determined that an individual no longer meets any criteria mentioned under #3 above (Medicare qualifying period). In addition, once reinstated, Medicare coverage will last for the rest of your life.

You have Lou Gehrig’s disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS).

If you do not meet any of the above criteria, you may still be able to receive Medicare part A if you have had:

1) 24 consecutive months of full-time employment; or

2) 40 quarters of work (10 years)

3) are married to someone who has had 40 quarters of work.

What is OASHI work for?

OASHI is a federal program that provides health insurance to low-income people getting Social Security benefits. If approved for OASHI, you have full coverage of all Medicare costs, including monthly premiums and yearly deductibles.

People with limited income who receive OASDI benefits may also qualify for OASHI Medicaid if they meet specific requirements. The same financial limits apply to those for the SSI program. However, unlike SSI, there are no asset limits to be eligible for this program.

If individuals meet these requirements, they may receive Medicare which is usually linked to OASHI coverage.
