Government Health Insurance Plans « Health Insurance Advisory

Research government health insurance

If you are unable to qualify for an individual medical insurance plan due to a pre existing health condition or cannot afford it, public programs and assistance may be available.

Medicaid which became law in 1965 is a government medical insurance program that pays for healthcare for individuals and families with very low incomes, typically at or below the federal poverty level. In order to qualify for federal Medicaid funds, each state must meet the minimum federal guidelines. Each state has its own eligibility guidelines and benefits.

If you are seeking health insurance for your children, President Obama signed a healthcare bill into law that enables millions of children to receive medical insurance. Every state has its own program and eligibility rules. In many states, uninsured children 18 years old and younger whose families earn up to $44,500 a year (for a family of four) are eligible for free or low-cost medical insurance that pays for doctor visits, dental care, prescription medicines, hospitalization and more.
