A qestion about insurance coverage for non-citizens
My father is 82 years old non citizen. He has a US visa though valid for 2 years. He has prostate cancer. He has already tried multiple medications back in my home country that were working for a while but no longer effective (zytiga and xtandi). There is a new immunotherapy therapy medication (provenge) that is available here but not back home. It looks like he can be eligible for coverage according to this: https://www.hca.wa.gov/health-care-services-supports/apple-health-medicaid-coverage/non-citizens
I do not understand the first point in the program requirement. Can anyone explain?
"The individual must be categorically relatable to a Medicaid program, but not eligible for the Medicaid program solely due to immigration status requirements (which program an individual is related to determines whether they follow the MAGI or Classic Medicaid eligibility rules and application processing);"
