Q:

How can you check Medicaid coverage status?

A:

To verify Medicaid coverage status, recipients can visit their state's Medicaid website, contact a local Medicaid office by phone or visit a Medicaid office in person. Checking online is fast and convenient, but an in-person is better for in-depth question.

Medicaid provides medical insurance for low-income people, seniors, children, pregnant women and the disabled. Services are based on income and family size. All Medicaid programs follow federal guidelines, but these guidelines vary by state. For example, some state plans pay service providers directly, while others use private insurance companies. Information on Medicaid is available in languages other than English, even if the local office does not advertise multilingual services.
