Does any piece of legislation have a better name than the Pickle Amendment? While the name may be jarring, it's a pretty sweet path that allows a slice of our clients to qualify for Medicaid. Gordon Bonnyman at the Tennessee Justice Center developed a quick and easy screening tool for Medicaid eligibility under the Pickle Amendment. He even walks through the steps with a hypothetical client, Ms. Ima Gherkin. He has just updated the tool with the numbers for 2018, and it's available for advocates on the Clearinghouse. Even if public benefits aren't your bread and butter practice, running through this quick screening can keep some clients from getting a sour dill. Use the screening tool.
