Program DescriptionThe Medicaid Program provides medical benefits to low income individuals without medical insurance or adequate medical insurance. The Federal government establishes general guidelines for the administration of Medicaid benefits. However, specific eligibility requirements to receive Medicaid benefits, as well as the type and scope of services provided, are determined by each individual state. Thus, a person who is eligible for Medicaid in one state may not qualify in another state. You must check with the Medicaid office in the state of Indiana to confirm your eligibility to receive benefits.
General Program RequirementsIn order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the state of Indiana, a U.S. national, citizen or permanent resident in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. You must also be either pregnant, a parent or relative caretaker of a dependent child(ren) under age 19, blind, have a disability or a family member in your household with a disability, or be 65 years of age or older.
