Medicaid is a federal and state-funded health insurance program that helps pay for health care. It is for low-income people who meet eligibility requirements. Pregnant women, children, people with disabilities, and people age 65 and older may also qualify. The rules may be different for children, adults, and people in nursing facilities, but they all may get the same services. Contact your local department of social services or the statewide information and referral system 1-800-230-6977.
