Medicaid offers health care coverage for low-income people or people with limited resources. Medicare typically covers basic home health and medical equipment but Medicaid coverage will vary state to state because it is run by both the federal and state government.
Depending on your state, you may also be covered for some or all of Medicare’s premiums, deductibles, and co-payments if you are eligible for Medicare and need financial assistance. Eligibility criteria for Medicare will be determined by factors such as family size and income level. Call your state medical assistance office if you are interested in learning more about Medicaid in your state.
