Medicaid is a health insurance program available to United States citizens and permanent residents who meet certain requirements for income, resources, age, or disability.
In general, Medicaid covers most skilled nursing care, whether at home or in a facility, and personal care provided by a home health aide. Medicine, supplies, and equipment, as well as transportation to and from medical appointments, may also be covered. In addition, some services, equipment, and supplies may require prior approval before they can be covered.
