What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a state and federal government program that provides health coverage to millions of eligible low-income Americans including adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities.
Currently, over 72.2 Million Americans are covered by Medicaid health insurance – making Medicaid one of the largest payers for health care in the United States.
Each state’s Medicaid Program has a different eligibility and application process for receiving health benefits.
Our website will help you navigate everything you need to know about how to apply for and receive Medicaid health benefits in your state. That includes Medicaid eligibility, coverage and benefits, Medicaid application and enrollment, phone number, renewal, Medicaid card and replacement, Medicaid for pregnant women, and more.
In addition, we also cover other benefit programs that are important to Medicaid and CHIP recipients, including Medicare, Social Security, and Food Stamps (SNAP).
