Medicaid is a health insurance program for low-income families who cannot afford health care costs. Medicaid serves low-income parents, children, seniors and people with disabilities.
Medicaid may help pay for certain medical expenses including:
Mental Health Care
Nursing Home Care
To be eligible for Medicaid you must:
Be a U.S. citizen or provide proof of eligible immigration status. Individuals only applying for emergency services are not required to provide documentation of immigration status.
Live in North Carolina, and provide proof of residency.
Have a Social Security number or have applied for one.
Each program will have additional requirements.
Your family's income, the number of people in your family, and the age of your children determine if you or your children qualify.
