PA Medical Assistance for Workers with Disabilities (MAWD) A Guide to Eligibility
“Medical Assistance for Workers with Disabilities (also called “MAWD”) is a state health insurance program for individuals who have chronic health problems and are working. MAWD is often a good option for individuals who have too much income to qualify for other categories of Medical Assistance (MA) but who nonetheless need health insurance. MAWD provides comprehensive health insurance coverage and, compared to other MA programs, MAWD has high income and resource limits. It also has flexible work and disability requirements. This guide explains each MAWD eligibility requirement in depth, and tells you how to apply.”
