Refugee Medical Assistance (RMA) is a federally authorized program providing medical assistance to refugees. Refugees who receive RCA are automatically eligible for RMA if they are not eligible for Medical Assistance (MA). Consider eligibility for MA under all other bases of eligibility first. Refugees do not have to apply for RCA as a condition of eligibility for RMA.
If the person loses MA eligibility due to increased earnings, he/she is still eligible for RMA without an eligibility determination for the remainder of the 8-month eligibility period.
For additional information on RMA, see the Minnesota Health Care Programs Eligibility Policy Manual.
