What is it?
Medicaid is a government health insurance program that helps individuals and families with children pay for some or all of their medical bills.
What do I get?
Free medical services such as doctors’ services, dental care, eyeglasses, home care, hospital care, and many other health-related services. Most people who receive Medicaid in Memphis must enroll in a managed care plan. Managed care is a health plan provided by a private Health Maintenance Organization (HMO). You can choose from a number of managed care plans.
How long do I get it?
You can get Medicaid as long as you still qualify but you'll need to recertify every 12 months. Recertification requires a Medicaid worker to make sure you are still eligible for Medicaid.
|In addition to Medicaid for Pregnant Women and Children, there are several other Medicaid programs you may be eligible for. Visit TennCare's website for more information.|
