Emergency Medicaid is a program that provides Medicaid to people who would not otherwise be eligible for Medicaid as a result of the person’s immigration status. It is not a program that provides you with immediate or prompt access to care if you get sick or need nursing home care. If you believe you may need Medicaid to cover care in the future, you should work with an experienced attorney to ensure eligibility and to apply before that care becomes necessary. Medicaid will also cover care retroactively in certain circumstances, and an attorney can assist you in determining if this is an option when you incur costly bills.
