> Alaska Medicaid
Medicaid is a health insurance program for specified low-income target groups in Alaska. Potential recipients include children, pregnant women, the aged, blind, and/or disabled, and people who are eligible to receive Federally assisted income maintenance payments. Medicaid does not pay money to you, instead, it sends payments directly to your health care providers.
General Program Requirements:
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a resident of the State of Alaska, a US national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. You must also be either pregnant, blind, have a disability or a family member in your household with a disability, be responsible for children under 19 years of age, or be 65 years of age or older.
