Do you or your family lack health insurance coverage? You may be eligible for medical assistance if you receive public assistance, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), or if you meet income, resource, age or disability criteria. There are special programs to help if you are pregnant or have a child. If you are pregnant, a worker at the clinic or hospital you are using for prenatal care may assist you in applying for Medicaid. If you have a child, he/she may be eligible for children's Medicaid, which provides the same benefits as Medicaid. For more information please call 315-366-2211.
