  • Medicaid Program

    The Medicaid Program provides medical benefits to low-income people who have no medical insurance or have inadequate medical insurance. The Federal government establishes general guidelines for the administration of Medicaid benefits. However, specific eligibility requirements to receive Medicaid benefits, as well as the type and scope of services provided, are determined by each individual State. Thus, a person who is eligible for Medicaid in one State may not qualify in another State. You must check with the Medicaid office in the state you live in to confirm your eligibility to receive benefits. Content Detail
