The number of people that receive Medicaid varies widely. One of the biggest indicator of how many people receive Medicaid is the economy - is the unemployment rate high? If so, there will be an increase in the number of people receiving Medicaid. This is a program designed to help low-income famili…es that do not otherwise have access to healthcare. A person usually needs to have some other "indicator" as well. You cannot simply have Medicaid just because you are "low-income." You have to have minor children in your home, be pregnant, or have a disability (and found to be disabled through SSA, which takes a long, long time!) Anyway, people need to really educate themselves on this program before they come to any conclusions. Thanks! (MORE)

Medicaid is exclusively for parents with young children of low-income levels, pregnant women, certain seniors, and people with disabilities. If you are an able bodied person without children between the ages of 21 (or 26 if your parents' insurance will cover you) to 64, you get *nothing*.
This is directly from the CMS website (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). www.cms.gov. Medicaid does not provide medical assistance for all poor persons. Even under the broadest provisions of the Federal statute (except for emergency services for certain persons), the Medicaid program do…es not provide health care services, even for very poor persons, unless they are in one of the designated eligibility groups. Low income is only one test for Medicaid eligibility; assets and resources are also tested against established thresholds. As noted earlier, categorically needy persons who are eligible for Medicaid may or may not also receive cash assistance from the TANF program or from the SSI program. Medically needy persons who would be categorically eligible except for income or assets may become eligible for Medicaid solely because of excessive medical expenses. (MORE)

To answer your question, I don't qualify for Medicaid. To be eligible for Medicaid, one must have limited income/assets, meet citizenship requirements, and be either: under 18; over 65; caring for a minor child; or "permanently and totally disabled" as defined by Social Security.

All sorts of things, which vary somewhat among the States - e.g., experimental care, care that's not medically necessarily to treat a condition or disease, etc. You really need to ask the question as what will "you state" Medicaid not pay for? Like what will Ohio Medicaid not pay for? It can vary …by state and changes all the time. Ohio uses medicaid managed care providers you get to choose from but switched so that they still use those but use direct medicaid for prescriptions. They also stopped paying for certain medications and limited amounts of certain medications. certain dental is no longer covered compared to years ago etc... You need to ask for your State. You can look up your Job and family Services website for your state to get some information and numbers to call as well. If you are enrolled in Medicaid and have a managed care provider like Molina Healthcare, Caresource, etc. then if they haven't already ask them to mail you a handbook. (MORE)
Medicaid is a State-run program for indigent persons who meet certain other factors of eligibility; it is not based on employment. You might be thinking of Medicare, which does require an employment history (by either the beneficiary or the beneficiary's spouse).
Medicaid is to help those people who are not offered health insurance thru their employer or cannot afford it.
Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations requires each State to provide certain basic services under Medicaid. Beyond that, States have considerable discretion in deciding what benefits to provide.

Request that the provider(s) waive the bill(s) as "charity care." Failing that, maybe you can work out a payment plan.
Medicaid provides medical care for indigent persons under age 18 and their parents, persons over age 65 and those permanently and totally disabled. Unemployment, in itself, does not make one eligible for Medicaid.
In my view: persons between ages 18 & 64 with limited resources are often ineligible for "non-financial" reasons (this will change by 2014 under health insurance reform); low reimbursement rates leading to limited availability of providers, especially in rural areas.
Medicaid is really not insurance in the formal sense of the term. It is a joint, federal-state program that is financed by those government entities. The federal government provides financial support to the states that wish to participate by providing medical aid to low-income persons. While the sta…te may choose whether or not to participate in the program, if it decides to do so, it has to comply with federal requirements. Like all government-run programs, Medicaid is ultimately financed from tax revenues. (MORE)

I assume you mean, "undocumented aliens," because being a person is not illegal anywhere in the US, even Arizona. In general, one must be a citizen to receive Medicaid. Certain categories of "legal" aliens may also qualify. An undocumented alien may receive Medicaid for emergency treatment only, if …the alien meets all the other factors of eligibility (over 65, under 18, caring for a relative under 18, or permanently and totally disabled; little or no income/assets).

Are people allowed to keep anything like house or car when they are in a nursing home and have to go on medicaid?
Medicaid clients are allowed to keep their motor vehicles. [Exception: unusual vehicles such as RVs and antique cars.] In general, after a Medicaid client has lived in a nursing home for a given period (e.g., six months), the State will presume that s/he will not be returning home and, therefore, wi…ll expect the client to sell her/his home to pay for medical care. [Exception: the client's spouse or disabled child is living in the home, in which case the State will file a real estate lien to recover assistance provided when ownership is transferred.] (MORE)

Medicaid does not have premiums. However, there is often a co-pay for services. Also, many Medicaid recipients must "spend down" excess income/assets. Spend down is the amount one must incur in medical expenses (paid or unpaid) before Medicaid eligibility begins. It is the difference between one's n…on-exempt income and assets and the income and asset standards in one's State - e.g., non-exempt income = $800/month/non-exempt assets = 0; State income standard = $700/month; spend down = $100.
