Medicaid helps low-income families, many of whom are employed,
get medical care. Preventive health
care is encouraged, as well as seeing a doctor for urgent care needs.
Eligibility is predominantly income based.
Medicaid Managed Care
Medicaid eligible people can choose
to enroll in our Physician Case Management Program or in a Community Blue
managed care program. They will then have a closer relationship
with their primary care physician, who is encouraged to see patients
regularly for preventive care and to monitor their health more closely.
Chronic Care Services
people require nursing home care, many look to the Department of Social
Services for assistance. Eligibility for our help is based on a
combination of income and assets. The healthy spouse may need to
contribute to the cost of care.
