Medicaid - Medical Assistance Program
The Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid) is intended to provide medical care to public assistance recipients and medically needy persons (those of low income who can meet their maintenance needs but have insufficient income to provide the cost of medical care). Recipients receive Medicaid cards which they use when receiving services from approved providers. Services include doctor and hospital bills, prescriptions, eyeglasses, and children’s dental care. The provider then bills the Medicaid Program as they would any other insurance program.
