Healthcare for Workers with Disabilities (HWD)

This program provides coverage to individuals with disabilities (aged 16 through 64) with earned income who purchase health care coverage based on a sliding income scale. HWD has no asset test and the net monthly income limit is based on 220 percent of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Find additional information on HWD in this FAQ.

To be eligible, an individual must meet federal disability requirements, be employed (including self-employment) full or part time, and pay the monthly premium. To receive HWD benefits, enrollees pay a monthly premium determined as a percentage of their income. The premium will never exceed 7.5 percent of total income and may be less. American Indians and Alaska Natives are exempt from paying premiums for HWD. Find more information about HWD for individuals receiving services from Developmental Disabilities Administration or Home and Community Services.
