In uncertain times like these, we can all use a little peace of mind. For many, knowing you have affordable, quality health insurance if you or a family member gets sick or injured, or that you can afford your next prescription, offers that sense of stability and protection we all need.
But for too many, the price of health insurance feels out of reach. Fortunately, Medicaid offers free or low-cost health insurance that helps you get the care you need and protects you and your family from large medical bills. It covers doctor visits, hospital care, prescriptions, mental health care, and more.
You can enroll in and disenroll from the program at any time. For many, Medicaid can be a helpful temporary option while they search for a new job, are between jobs, or simply need some assistance affording health insurance in this moment. Even if you’ve applied before, it may be worth trying again. Medicaid eligibility is based on your monthly income, so if you’ve lost or changed jobs, had your hours cut back, or any other change in circumstances, be sure to check out your options.
