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

Medicare is not all inclusive healthcare, as is

premiums and deductibles.
