Medicaid Overview

What is Medicaid?

Every state runs a Medicaid program although it may be called something else. For example, California has Medi-Cal; Maine has MaineCare. This program provides health insurance for those who can least afford it.  The coverage is very comprehensive - including doctors visits, hospital care, dental care, prescriptions and mental health care.
