Applying for Medicaid

Have Questions on Medicaid Cost?

Medicaid members never pay a deductible for their coverage. A deductible is the amount someone pays for covered health care services before your insurance plan starts to pay. Medicaid health plans require no deductible ever. Most members will not have a co-pay. A co-pay is a fee for a covered service, paid by the patient to the health care provider. However, a small amount of members at higher income levels may have a co-pay.
