Moms Medical Resource


Programs are available for qualified single parent homes who meet the income eligibility requirements. Below, I have researched medical programs for us moms and kids and I continue to research everyday. Please stay tuned for updates. :)

National Medicaid & CHIP Program Information

Medicaid provides health coverage to millions of Americans, including eligible low-income adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. Medicaid is administered by states, according to federal requirements.  The program is funded jointly by states and the federal government.
The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level ($29,700 for a family of four in 2011) for nearly all Americans under age 65. This Medicaid eligibility expansion goes into effect on January 1, 2014 but states can choose to expand coverage with Federal support anytime before this date-see related Federal Policy Guidance and states that have expanded Medicaid prior to 2014. See Eligibility Provisions in the Affordable Care Act.
 Eligibility?
 Many states have expanded coverage, particularly for children, above the  federal minimums. For many eligibility groups, income is calculated in  relation to a percentage of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). For example, 100% of the FPL for a family of four is $23,550 in 2013. The Federal Poverty Level is updated annually.  For other groups, income standards are based on income or other  non-financial criteria standards for other programs, such as the  Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program.

If you or someone in your family needs
health coverage, you should apply. Enrollment is open year-round. To
learn more about Medicaid and CHIP and how to enroll, visit your state’s Medicaid agency or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669). To learn more about affordable health coverage for your whole family through the Health Insurance Marketplace, visit HealthCare.gov.

Medicaid and CHIP typically cover a range of benefits including:

  • Doctor Visits
  • Emergency Care
  • Hospital Care
  • Immunizations
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Dental

 

Who may be eligible?

Medicaid and CHIP cover:

  • Children and teens up to age 19
  • Young people up to 21 may be covered under Medicaid
  • Youth who have “aged out” of foster care can be covered under Medicaid until they reach age 26

Medicaid also covers:

  • Pregnant women
  • Parents
  • People with disabilities
  • In states that have expanded Medicaid, more adults may be eligible than ever before, whether or not they are raising children

U.S. citizens and certain lawfully present immigrants may be eligible.

Children may be eligible based on their family income. How much income can a family have?

Eligibility depends on your income, the number of people in your
family and the rules in your state. In almost every state, children in
families with income up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level
($48,500 per year for a family of four) are covered. In more than half
the states, the income eligibility for children can be even higher.

What health benefits can children get?

Eligible children and teens can get:

  • Regular check-ups
  • Shots
  • Doctor and dentist visits
  • Vision care
  • Hospital care
  • Mental health services
  • Needed medications and more

What about cost?

Medicaid and CHIP are available for free or at low-cost. Depending on
family income and the rules in your state, some families may pay low
premiums and cost-sharing for some services. Preventive services for
children are available at no cost.
