Medicaid Application by State

We are going to finish our series on Medicaid by providing a comprehensive list that outlines where to find a Medicaid application.  The listing includes the organization's name, street address, telephone numbers, as well as website addresses.

Medicaid is jointly funded by federal and state governments, but the program is administered through state agencies.  This listing includes all 50 health services agencies located in the United States, so it's possible to find state-specific applications.

Applying for Medicaid

Additional Resources

As a reminder, Medicaid is different than Medicare, which provides qualifying individuals with health and hospital insurance.  These programs are commonly referred to as Medicare Part A, Medicare Part B, as well as Medicare Part D, which is a prescription service.  Medicaid is a program that helps five broadly defined groups including children, pregnant women, adults with dependent children, people with disabilities, and individuals age 65 and older.

Medicaid eligibility is determined by each state, using guidance provided by the federal government.  Generally, the program is reserved for America's poorest individuals.  Eligibility is usually determined by each state, using a combination of income and assets.

Medicaid Contact Information

Below we've provided an up-to-date list of Medicaid contacts throughout the United States (as of September 2014).  The majority of these sites are related to the health care departments and agencies within each state that provide a wide range of benefits and services to its residents.

The contact information includes the name of the department or agency responsible for administering the state's Medicaid program, local mailing address, toll free telephone number and links to their website.  These websites will provide the specific eligibility rules or requirements for each state, as well as any application forms needed when applying for Medicaid.
