♦ Medicaid primarily uses Federal tax dollars but is administered by the states. Some states also supplement their Medicaid programs with State funds.
With the passage of the Affordable Care Act, many states have expanded their Medicaid programs to cover all people below certain income levels.
Qualifying for Medicaid coverage depends partly on whether your state has expanded its program.
There are no open enrollment or special enrollment periods. You can apply anytime.
