What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a state and federal government program. It gives free or low-cost health coverage to millions of Americans. It also varies per state, so we recommend checking your state’s website to learn more.
Who does Medicaid cover?
Medicaid covers some low-income people, families, and children. It also covers pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Some states cover people who make less than a certain amount of money. But, even if you don't qualify for Medicaid based on income, you may qualify for your state's program.
When can I apply for Medicaid?
You can apply for Medicaid any time of year.
How can I find out if Medicaid covers my medication?
Medicaid might cover your medication. Since information varies by state, we recommend contacting the state directly or going to its website.
Visit Healthcare.gov to find your state’s Medicaid site and learn more.
If you have Medicaid, we can help you learn if your medication is covered and how much it will cost.
Can I qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid?
People who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid are considered "dual eligible." This means that both programs can cover most of your healthcare costs and you might qualify for special kinds of Medicare plans. Visit Medicare.gov to learn more.
