Many of our readers have probably heard of Medicaid, as thousands of Georgia residents are covered by this federal program that is administered through the states. But, some people may have questions about the process of enrolling in Medicaid, a process which can, admittedly, be somewhat complex at times.
For starters, it is important to understand that no other entity provides health insurance to more people in America than Medicaid. It is a massive program. However, there are certain eligibility restrictions for an individual to enroll in this program, based mostly on age and where or not the person has disabilities. At its core, Medicaid is designed to help the most vulnerable people in our country, which would be the very young, the elderly and those who suffer from disabilities.
Next, the financial resources that are available to a potential applicant are an important consideration when it comes to qualifying for Medicaid. If an applicant earns too much income or owns too much in valuable assets, that individual may not qualify for Medicaid. Successful applicants are typically those individuals who do not have significant income or assets.
