Medicaid provides health coverage to individuals and families with limited income and resources. You’re automatically offered Medicaid if you receive other types of public assistance. That may include Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) and Foster Care.
Low-income families, children, pregnant women, and aged, blind, or disabled adults may also qualify for Medicaid.
You can have private health insurance and be eligible for Medicaid.
