Q) I am currently on Medicaid and have been asked multiple times by my caregivers to provide my Medicaid card. I do not have one, nor was one ever sent to me. When I go online, it sends me in a loop and I have tried numerous times. What can I do to please get a Medicaid card so that I am no longer denied critical services and medications I so desperately need.I am at the point of tears. Thank you so much for any help you can provide.
A) To apply for Medicaid and get your Medicaid card you will need to Contact your state Medicaid agency. You must be a resident of the state where you are applying for benefits. Then Fill out an application through the Health Insurance Marketplace. If your income is too high for Medicaid, your child may still qualify for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It covers medical and dental care for uninsured children and teens up to age 19.
You can Find a program by state, or call the Health Insurance Marketplace at 1-800-318-2596 (TTY: 1-855-889-4325).
