What Does Medicaid Cover?

What Does Medicaid Cover?

Medicaid will cover many things, but it is reserved for those without enough assets to get such care on their own or to pay for other coverage.

Some examples of covered services include checkups and childbirth for low income pregnant women, and nursing home care for low-income elderly people with long term care needs. Medicaid covers a very wide range of medical costs, including hospital expenses, visits to the doctor, nursing home expenses, and so on.

In order to be eligible for Medicaid, a person must prove that they have an amount of assets and income below threshold limits. The Medicaid office will also perform a five-year look back to see if assets were given away to family members in an attempt to be eligible.

Medicaid doesn’t provide coverage for prescription drugs, but it can sometimes pay for Medicare Part D, which does provide that coverage. It might also cover other Medicare premiums and deductibles. Please check with your doctor to see whether or not he accepts Medicaid.

Since Medicaid is a government-run program, the payments they make to your doctor for medical procedures are reduced, many doctors do not accept it.
