MaineCare Common Questions

What if my income is too high for MaineCare?

Double check. If you are over income for MaineCare, you could be eligible for “Medically Needy” coverage, sometimes called the “Spend Down” or “Deductible” program.

Some medical expenses could be covered by MaineCare once you exceed your "Spend Down" limit. This can be an important safety net if you have high medical bills. You may also be able to get more help through other programs.

The Maine DHHS Office of Family Independence oversees this program. Call them at 1-855-797-4357 for help.
