Medicaid also know as Medical Assistance or MA is provides health insurance to eligible individuals. Each category of Medicaid has its eligibility criteria and income limits. There are categories for families, single individuals, elderly individuals, pregnant women, children and the disabled. Because of the income limits and eilgibility requirements, not everyone who applies will be eligible for Mediaid. To apply, you will be required to complete an application form and provide details about your household situation such as household composition, income, resources and any special circumstances such as health conditions, pregnancy etc. Most programs are free but you may have copays for services. One category, Medical Assistance for Workers with a Disability, MAWD, does have a mothly premium. You do not have to be uninsured to apply for Medicaid but you do have to verify any health insurance you currently have or that you have access to. Medicaid is considered the "payer of last resort." If you already have health insurance, the provider must bill that insurance first.
