Q) I have type 1 diabetes so I am insulin dependent and wanted to know if I am able top receive full Medicaid instead of only family planning Medicaid, in order to go to my endocrinologist appointment and get insulin. I thought that if you had a condition you were able to receive full Medicaid benefits.
A) Please call or visit your local social service/Medicaid office or website and review your state financial requirements for qualifying for full Medicaid. By law states are required to cover certain groups of Low-income individuals, qualified pregnant women, children and families. Each state governs their medicaid programs differently. The Affordable Care Act of 2010 created the opportunity for states to expand Medicaid to cover nearly all low-income Americans under age 65.
