Medicaid

Medicaid was created to provide medical assistance and care for the financially impoverished elderly and certain other indigent individuals and low income families.  It is administered on the State level and funded by both State and federal resources.  People served by Medicaid can include the elderly, children, the disabled and low income parents.

Medicade is part of the Social Security Act administered by each State and monitored by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Eligibility for and services offered by Medicade can vary from State to State.  States are not required to participate in the Medicaid program but every State has participated since the early 1980's.

Medicaid pays for the majority of residents now in all nursing homes and provides services to tens of millions of Americans.  It can amount to about one quarter of each State's budget and is growing.  The U.S. Congress has recently debated legislation to cut Medicaid funding.

Medicaid is not to be confused with Medicare which is administered by the federal government.  Medicare covers health benefits for those over 65 years of age and covers far fewer services.  Medicare is not all inclusive healthcare, as is Medicaid, and contains provisions for the payment of premiums and deductibles.
