Full Answer

Income limits are based on the number of people in a household, so a family of eight can make more money than a family of four and still qualify for Medicaid. On the other hand, the smaller family may be denied based on income. Some resources, such as a primary residence or car, are exempt and do not count towards the resource limits.
