Medicaid is a state-run program intended to provide medical assistance for low-income parents and children, seniors and people with disabilities. There are income and asset caps that limit who is eligible for the program. You may apply for Medicaid using their online process, in person or through the mail. Substantial documentation to prove your income and total assets owned before you will be approved. The application process is very rigid and can be time consuming.
