How to Apply for Medicaid

Medicaid and Medicare are two different programs. Medicaid is a state-run program that provides hospital and medical coverage for people with low income and little or no resources. Each state has its own rules about who is eligible and what is covered under Medicaid. Some people qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. For more information about the Medicaid program and if you qualify, contact your local medicaid agency, social services or welfare office.
