Medical Assistance under the TEFRA Option Post-Eligibility

Medical Assistance (MA) under the TEFRA option is for children with a disability who are otherwise ineligible for MA because household income is above the MA for Families with Children and Adults (MA-FCA) income limit. The TEFRA option for children with a disability is named after the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) of 1982 that created the option.

These policies apply to MA under the TEFRA option. In general, MA under the TEFRA option follows the MA for People Who Are Age 65 or Older and People Who are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD) post-eligibility policies.
