The Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) provides Medical Assistance, also called Medicaid, coverage to individuals and families determined by their needs and income. Eligibility depends on family size and income. The annual income limit is about $21,200 for a family of three. A family may also be categorically eligible if already receiving public assistance such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) or foster care. Eligibility for Medicaid is usually determined every 12 months.
Medical Assistance will provide free health services including:
· Low-cost or free prescriptions;
· Doctor visits;
· Emergency room visits;
· Hospital stays;
· X-ray and lab services; and,
· Many other services.
