Re-applying For Medicaid: How to do it
The Medicaid program requires you to reapply every year. You can now apply for Medicaid, CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program) and Marketplace health insurance in one place thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). In the Health Insurance Marketplace, you can find out not only what Obamacare plans are available in your area and their premium rates, but also whether you qualify for Medicaid.
What Is Medicaid?
Health insurance plans for low-income Americans are provided by Medicaid, a program jointly funded by the federal government and the states. Health and Human Services oversees Medicaid, which provides free or low-cost medical care.
Depending on your income level, you may be eligible for Medicaid. Individuals with disabilities, children, pregnant women, elderly people, and people with disabilities can all receive Medicaid. Currently, Medicaid covers 25 percent of all children, 21 percent of low-income adults, and 60 percent of nursing home residents in the U.S.
It is important that you remember to reapply for Medicaid every year if you are one of the 50 million Americans who would not have health insurance without it.
