Medicaid is a state program that is available to those with low income and/or resources. Some people who have Medicare use Medicaid a secondary insurance to cover the 20 percent that Medicare does not. If a patient doesn’t qualify for Medicare, Medicaid can be used as the only coverage. 
As every state has its own Medicaid coverage, the state determines:
- Elgibility Guidelines
- Services Covered 
- Payment Rate 
To find out about your state’s Medicaid program, contact your state’s department of health or speak to your social worker or insurance coordinator at your facility.
