The MAWD Program

By Brian Patrick Bronson, Esquire

We try to take every opportunity to educate our clients about resources available to help improve their quality of life. Health insurance coverage is one of those areas where assistance is needed and may be available.

The Department of Welfare has a program that is not well-publicized that may be able to provide insurance to disabled adults at an affordable rate. The program is Medical Assistance for Workers with Disabilities (MAWD). You may qualify for admission into the program if you are between 16 and 64 years of age, disabled under the same guidelines used in evaluating Social Security Disability cases, and meet certain income requirements. If you are eligible, you can receive help with expenses such as doctor visits, emergency care, medical equipment, prescriptions, rehabilitation services and several other services.

To obtain more information about the program or to apply for benefits, call your local Welfare Office or visit and search for "MAWD."
