Medicaid programs and application processes differ from state to state. You may qualify for free or low-cost care through Medicaid based on income and family size. In all states, Medicaid provides health coverage for some low-income people, families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities.

Documents Needed in most states:

Proof of age (birth certificate or driver’s license).
Proof of citizenship or alien status.
Proof of all sources of income (paystubs or tax return, Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Veteran’s benefits, retirement accounts, and any other income).
Proof of assets and other resources: include copies of bank statements or other financial resources if directed on your Medicaid application.
Proof of your disability: if you think you qualify because you’re disabled, you’ll need to include documentation as specified in your Medicaid application.
Proof of residence (rent receipts or landlord statements, a copy of your mortgage, recent mail addressed to you at your current address): make copies to include with your application.
Proof of other insurance: include a copy of your red, white, and blue Medicare card (or other insurance ID card) with your Medicaid application. Remember that state applications and instructions may vary. Check your state’s Medicaid application website to see if they ask for additional documentation.
