The Medicaid for Workers with Disabilities program, which began July 1, 2010, allows people with disabilities to go or return to work and earn more money without losing their healthcare coverage through the Medicaid program.

Through an affordable fee, people can "buy-in" to the program, which covers necessities such as personal assistance and developmental disability services.
