Overview

The Medicaid Program provides medical benefits to low income individuals without medical insurance or adequate medical insurance. The Federal government establishes general guidelines for the administration of Medicaid benefits. However, specific eligibility requirements to receive Medicaid benefits, as well as the type and scope of services provided, are determined by each individual state. Thus, a person who is eligible for Medicaid in one state may not qualify in another state. You must check with the Medicaid office in the state of Indiana to confirm your eligibility to receive benefits.
