Do you mean Medicaid (Welfare) Are you referring to getting a Medi-Gap policy to cover what Medi-care doesn't pay? Here's Medicare's 40 page booklet on dual coverage http://www.medicare.gov/Publications/Pubs/pdf/02179.pdf

When a non custodial parent is ordered by the court to pay medical coverage, and the custodial parent applies for Medicaid that does not mean that the dependent child's medical coverage can be terminated by the non custodial parent. The ordered insurance becomes the primary insurance, and Medicaid becomes the secondary.

There are various companies that offer discount medical insurance. Some of the companies that offer discount medical insurance are Assurant Health and AmeriPlan USA.

Sometimes. Depends upon your particular health conditions. One with diabetes, for instance, is going to need secondary medical insurance to help cover the expenses that Medicaid or Medicare do not cover completely.

Go to Job and Family Services and sign up for Medicaid. Call the hospital and ask if they have a financial aid program. Ask your provider to pay the balance in full with a discount due to no insurance.

They certainly can. Medicaid is a state run health insurance for the those eligible. Think of it as a business. Medicaid is just another health insurance to medical private offices, but it doesn't pay as well as other private insurances. As the result, many medical offices do not sign up with Medicaid.

Having private insurance does not make one ineligible for Medicaid or Medicare.

If you have medicare and you are a dependent on your spouses medical insurance policy then you would be primary under your spouse and Medicare would be secondary payor. There are a few circumstances where Medicare would be primary but very few (your spouse is covered under COBRA, the group is less than 20 members, or you have end stage renal disease.) Medicare is 99.99 % always secondary because it is a government program (much like Medicaid.) I hope this helps:) Evan

Primary insurance coverage is what is first used when a medical service is being rendered. This is what will be billed first. Secondary insurance is supposed to cover what the primary insurance does not.

You could possibly qualify for free medical, individual medical insurance. Try filling out an application for Medicare or Medicaid and see where that gets you. To learn more about individual costs on medical insurance, please visit the site: http://www.healthinsurance.org/

No. More information would be necessary to give an exact resolution, but you are not allowed to have both private insurance and Medicaid. You can not have both private insurance and medicaid at the same time. That is what is called double dipping. You husbands plan should have an option to "opt-in" to his plan if it is a group medical provided through work.

SSI (Supplemental Security Income) is not health insurance and does not provide medical care. You might be thinking about Medicaid, given that SSI recipients are eligible for Medicaid. Your medical provider would be able to tell you whether Medicaid in your state provides the medicine that you have in mind.

Some companies that offer medical insurance for individuals include Aetna, Anthem, Humana, and Cigna. For those who qualify in the United States, the government also offers Medicare and Medicaid.

If the government agrees that the person is disabled and needs medical care medicaid is most likely the insurance they will give that person. The programs are administered by the states and so qualifications vary. There are usually requirements in terms of income and assets was well as degree of medical care needed.

It's secondary or tertiary insurance that is held to cover any medical expenses the primary insurance policy does not cover or does not cover completely.

Aetna Health Insurance offers the benefits of medical health insurance for coverage of almost every medical condition. It also offers discount prescriptions and low copays depending on your plan.

Medicare does not cover medical alert systems. Most insurance carriers will not cover it either even with doctor's prescription.

A provider is not required to accept Medicaid or private insurance. However, if the provider indicated to you that s/he was doing so in your case, there's at least an ethical problem. In Illinois, a provider who accepts a patient as Medicaid cannot bill the patient if Medicaid fails to pay due to the provider's negligence in billing.

Yes. That's why Insurance is a good idea. Even if you get Medicaid, at death they can get your house.
