NJ WorkAbility: Health Coverage that works with you. A job should free your potential, not limit it.
Now you can achieve even more.
If you’re someone with a permanent disability, you’re used to overcoming obstacles. Now you’ve got one less hurdle to deal with. Thanks to a new program called NJ Workability, you’re free to for that job, aim for that raise and get your career in gear. Without having to worry about losing your Medicaid health coverage.
Earn approximately $58,000 annually.
With NJ Workability, you can now earn as much as $58,000 a year and still be fully eligible for Medicaid health coverage. You can also have up to $20,000 in personal assets, such as a bank account and still qualify.
This is more than it may seem because the Medicaid definition of ‘assets’ does NOT include:
*The home you live in.
*Vehicles used for medical transportation.
*Vehicles used for transportation to and from work.
*IRA and 401K personal retirement accounts.
It doesn’t matter how much any of these things are worth-NJ Workability won’t count them as personal assets.
And keep the health benefits you need most:
NJ Workability is a new program that lets you earn much more than ever before-expanding eligibility so you can get or maintain the valuable health benefits that Medicaid provides. Coverage includes medications, durable medical equipment, outpatient counseling, medical transportation, personal care services and all the other medical and healthcare services.
And because NJ Workability is a permanent, state and federally funded program, you can depend on it. As long as you’re eligible, you don’t have to worry that your benefits will be suddenly or unexpectedly cancelled.
Who is eligible?
The qualifications for NJ Workability are fairly simple. Basically, the program is open to all New Jersey residents who:
*Are between the ages of 16 and 64.
*Have a permanent physical or mental disability.
*Are employed either full or part-time.
