Who We Are
Medicaid is the federally funded medical care program for individuals who are elderly, blind, disabled, dependent children, low income families and children including parents and pregnant women. The program offers medical coverage for doctor visits, emergency room visits, hospitalization, prescriptions, medical supplies and equipment, nursing home costs, and home health care. The level and scope of coverage varies.
To be eligible, individuals must meet income and resource requirements. Most Family and Children Medicaid Programs do not have resource limits. Supplemental Security Income recipients are generally eligible for full coverage. Aged, blind and disabled individuals with incomes less than 80 percent of the federal poverty level may also be eligible for full coverage.
