Depending on the applicant's category, Medicaid applications in New York may require information about the applicant's income, age, Social Security number, citizenship or immigration status, and place of residence, states the New York State Department of Health. Some applicants must also provide information about their bank accounts or insurance policies.
Applicants who belong to the Modified Adjusted Gross Income, or MAGI, category must provide income documentation if they state a different income than what is found on data matches, according to the New York State Department of Health. They can attest to their household income if they apply through the New York State of Health or the New York State Marketplace. Medicaid personnel verify an applicant's Social Security number and citizenship or immigration status through federal data sources. The submission of supporting documents is necessary if the data does not match the information provided by the applicant.
Those who belong to the non-MAGI category must provide a Social Security number, proof of age, proof of citizenship or immigration status, and proof of income from retirement benefits, veteran's benefits, Supplemental Security Income or Social Security, as the New York State Department of Health explains. The Social Security Administration verifies an applicant's Social Security Number, birth date and citizenship. Information about resources such as insurance policies and bank accounts is necessary for applicants who are least 65 years old, blind or disabled.
