2012 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Volume 1, General Information : Section 4: Client Eligibility : 4.1 General Medicaid Eligibility : 4.1.3 Medicaid Buy-In Program for Employed Individuals with Disabilities

The Medicaid Buy-In (MBI) Program allows employed individuals with disabilities to receive Medicaid services by paying a monthly premium. Some MBI participants, based on income requirements, may be determined to have a $0 premium amount and therefore are not required to make a premium payment. Individuals with earnings of less than 250 percent of the federal poverty income limits (FPIL) may be eligible to participate in the program. Applications for the program are accepted through HHSC’s regular Medicaid application process.
Participants will receive the Your Texas Benefits Medicaid card, which indicates the Medicaid services for which they are eligible. MBI participants in urban service areas will be served through Texas Medicaid fee-for-service.
