What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a Social Security program that provides healthcare for qualifying families or individuals. Its primary beneficiaries are usually people with low income, including the elderly and families living well below the poverty line. Children under the age of 19 who cannot provide for themselves are also often allowed to collect Medicaid benefits. While it is a federal program, each individual state is allowed to decide what qualifies for benefits, set payment rates, and to determine which services Medicaid will provide.
