Do I qualify for FREE Medicaid Coverage?
If so, you may be eligible!
I injured my hand while working on a car and did not have medical coverage. I applied for coverage after I went to the ER but was denied because of my income and racked up a big hospital bill. The person who helped me was unaware of the law which
provides coverage for former foster youth up to age 26 regardless of income or assets. I received help from an agency that told me about the new Medicaid law. I got coverage and addressed my medical bills. Knowledge is power.
