Initiatives -
Medicaid is a federal-, state-, and county-funded program that provides means-tested health insurance for those with limited income and financial resources. Medicaid covers a wide range of health care services including clinic and hospital visits, prescription drugs, and other utilization. Among the groups of people served by Medicaid are U.S. citizens and resident aliens, including people with specific disabilities as well as low-income adults and their children. Medicare is a federally-funded social health insurance program focused primarily on people age 65 or older, but also including some individuals under age 65 with specific disabilities, and people of all ages with end-stage renal disease. An individual’s financial resources play no role in determining eligibility. Some persons, known as Medicare dual eligibles, are eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare. The patients included in the initiative included Medicaid patients as well as Medicaid-Medicare dual eligible patients.
