Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Many individuals feel like Medicaid is for low-income individuals who can’t afford their medical costs. But, Medicaid is something that we have all paid into all of our working life. And it’s a great benefit we should use as we age.
Understanding the program and applying for Medicaid can be a confusing process and our team at the Care Assistance Center is here to help.
