I am trying to apply for health wave (medicaid) for me and my 2 year old daughter. I was looking at the requirements and it states “The monthly countable income will be compared to the income standard used for the cash assistance program (TAF) offered by Social and Rehabilitation Services (SRS). For example, the typical family of four may qualify if countable income is less than $ 471 per month.” We have a family of three and my fiance is the only one with a job. She makes about grosses $ 800 bi-weekly. Does this mean we won’t qualify? What is countable income?
I live in Kansas by the way.

    Countable income is any income by any household member that’s earned. It also includes alimony payments, unemployment benefits, interest/rental income. Typically, it does NOT include child support payments and some types of disability insurance.
