Medicaid is the State and Federal cooperative venture that provides medical coverage to eligible need individuals.

Medicaid was introduced to improve the health of people who might otherwise go without medical care for themselves and their children. You can think of Medicaid as a type of health insurance for low-income families, children, and people who are elderly or have a disability. But unlike regular health insurance, you don’t have to pay for it, and most services are free.
Each month you will receive a Medicaid ID card. It is very important that you keep it in a safe place. You will have to show that card each time you visit a doctor or get a prescription filled. You will not receive a monthly ID card if your only benefit is payment of all or part of your Medicare Part B premium.
In most cases, Medicaid pays for doctors’ services, laboratory and X-ray charges, medication, nursing facility, and hospital services, family planning, eyeglasses, hearing aids, ambulance, podiatry, chiropractic, maternity, nurse midwife, and other health care services.
