Medicaid is a federally funded, state-run program that helps people and families who have very limited incomes and resources. It pays for health care costs, including doctor visits, hospital visits, and prescription drugs. Income cut-offs, asset limits, and benefits vary from state to state. In some states, it may have different names (TennCare, Medi-Cal, etc.) Contact your State Health Department by phone for more information. (It is listed in the blue pages of your local phone book.) You can find your local office by visiting.
