What is Medicaid?

Medicaid, a collaborative effort of the federal government and individual states, is an invaluable program that provides free or low-cost medical coverage to millions of Americans. Low-income families, children, pregnant women, older adults and disabled individuals have access to essential health services through Medicaid. Medicaid programs and names vary from state to state but the mission remains the same, providing free or low-cost health care to Americans in need.

How to Apply for Medicaid

You can apply for Medicaid through the health insurance marketplace or directly with your state.

Even though your income may not meet the eligibility requirements, it is still worth applying. Each state uses various circumstances or criteria to determine if you qualify for aid.
