Medicaid 

What is it? Medicaid is a US government funded health care service. 

Who qualifies? Individuals with low income and individuals with disabilities. 

What can they help me with? Medicaid covers acute care services (doctor visits, hospitalizations, surgeries, etc.), dental care, speech/physical/occupational therapy, in-home skilled nursing care, medical equipment/supplies (e.g. diapers, feeding tube supplies), and transportation to and from appointments. 

How do I get in contact with them? Medicaid is administered by states, usually through Health and Human Services departments.

*Tip: If you do not qualify based on income, you can add your child to a waitlist that will wave the income restrictions. Please see Waitlists and Waivers below.
