Medicaid is a federally funded program run by the state and the county, which provides medical insurance and long-term care for middle-to low-income persons, including the elderly and disabled. If one is eligible, based on income and resource restrictions, Medicaid will pay for all medical care (including doctors and hospitals), prescriptions, home care, nursing home care and other healthcare-related expenses. The program differs from Medicare which is available to anyone over the age of 65 or to the certified disabled who have worked and paid into the Social Security system. Medicaid is based on income and resource levels, and although anyone can apply, eligibility needs to be approved via the application process.
