Medicaid is the United States health program for eligible individuals and families with low incomes and resources.

Medicaid is a type of medical and dental insurance that is available for those that don’t have the income to pay for such insurance on their own. Medicaid is a government program and the exact requirements for it can be different in each state. There will be an application that has to be completed as well as verification of income and resources. There is an income guideline that is based on the total number of people that reside in the household.

In most states, Medicaid is only available for children under the age of 18 that meet the eligibility criteria. They must also be legal citizens of the United states. Many states also offer Medicaid for pregnant women so that they can get the prenatal care that they need. Their child will automatically be eligible for Medicaid until they turn one year of age. Some states also have Medicaid for those that are disabled and the elderly but it depends on how their regulations are written.

If you don’t have medical or dental insurance you should find out if you and your family qualify for Medicaid. In some states you can qualify even if you have other forms of insurance. The Medicaid will be a backup resource and can only be accessed when there are expenses the other insurance won’t pay or co-pays.

Not all doctors and medical facilities are willing to take Medicaid though. This can be frustrating when you find that you have been approved for program yet you can’t find someone that will take it. Some states offer an 800 number you can call to find Medicaid providers in your area. Keep in mind though that most of them only allocate a certain amount of slots for patients with this type of coverage.

The goal of Medicaid programs is to ensure individuals have a resource to help them get the medical and dental care they need. Too many people don’t seek medical attention when they need to due to not being able to pay for it. While there are still some kinks in the system that have to be worked out, it is a very beneficial program. More providers are added all the time to help ensure those with Medicaid can get services.
