This federal / state financed program provides medical care for specified needy persons. Eligibility for Medicaid is determined by the Social Services Department according to criteria established by the State Department of Medical Assistance Services, which administers the program.

Medicaid makes direct payments to health care service providers for eligible individuals and families who are unable to pay for needed medical services. Medicaid pays for a variety of medical services, including prescription drugs, doctor visits, nursing facility care and hospital care.


Eligibility Team

The Balanced Budget Act of 1977 created the State Children's Health Insurance Program to provide funds to states to enable them to initiate the provision of children health insurance to uninsured low income children. FAMIS(Family Access to Medical Insurance Security Plan) covers uninsured low income children under age 19.

State and Local Hospitalization (S.L.H.)
State and Local Hospitalization provides direct payment to hospitals for eligible individuals who do not qualify for Medicaid and who are unable to pay for required medical services. This program will pay for limited hospitalization, outpatient surgery and emergency room visits. Inpatient and outpatient doctor visits are not covered.

Auxiliary Grants Program
Financial assistance is available for certain needy, aged, blind or disabled persons who reside in adult care residences or adult family care homes. The money received, plus other income, is used by the person to pay for care provided by the home. Individuals who get money from the Auxiliary Grants Program also get a Medicaid card to use for medical bills.
