While Medicare is a Federal program, Medicaid is administered by the individual states. It’s called by different names in different states but for our discussion we’ll refer to it as Medicaid. Medicaid is a program designed for individuals with low income or special needs. There are different tiers of Medicaid depending upon income levels. If an individual qualified for 100% Medicaid then all of your Medicare cost share will be paid by Medicaid including your Part B premium. Medicaid will lower the cost of Medications, provide transportation benefits and provide for long term care. It is important to note that not all doctors participate in Medicaid. More information about Medicaid can be found in your individual states web site.
