What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a program that pays the medical bills of people who have low-income, or cannot afford medical care, and meet other eligibility requirements. It is run by the State of Maryland and pays the medical bills with State and Federal tax money.
How can I get Medicaid?
All people who receive money through Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Temporary Cash Assistance (TCA) automatically receive Medicaid.
If you do not receive SSI or TCA, you must file an application to find out if you are eligible for Medicaid. To do this, you must go to the Department of Social Services office in the city or county where you live.
What is the Maryland Children's Health Program (MCHP)?
The Maryland Children’s Health Program (MCHP) is a program that was started in July 1998. The program provides full health benefits for children up to age 19, and pregnant women of any age who meet the income guidelines. MCHP enrollees obtain care from a variety of Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) through the Maryland HealthChoice Program.
How can I get MCHP for my child?
If you would like to find out more about MCHP, or you are intrested in recieving MCHP for your child, please fill out an application on the State of Maryland's Website, or our Customer Service Department for more information.
