Medicaid is a health insurance program for eligible individuals and families with low income and resources. Medicaid is jointly funded by the state and the federal government. Medicaid is administered by the states. Medicaid is considered a secondary payor to Medicare and other health insurances. If an individual has both Medicare and Medicaid, Medicaid will only pay for services not covered by Medicare. Medicaid will also pay the deductibles and copays for Medicare or other primary health insurers. When Medicaid is the primary coverage, it pays the entire expense of care less any shared costs determined by the Medicaid enrollee’s income and assets.
Medicaid covers inpatient hospitalizations, short-term skilled nursing facility stays, extended and long-term care stays in a nursing facility, home health, hospice, physician visits, outpatient tests, therapy, medications, certain supplies and equipment and many other services.
