Alabama Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that funds a variety of medical and long-term care services for people who cannot cover their health care and medical services out of pocket. Medicaid is intended to serve low-income children, individuals with disabilities, pregnant women, nursing home residents, and particular types of individuals on Medicare. In order to qualify for Medicaid, you must meet specific income and additional requirements. Residents who meet the requirements for Medicaid may also be eligible for a Low Income Subsidy or LIS.
Alabama residents qualify for Medicare if they are 65 years old or older and are eligible for or receive social security benefits, have held or have a spouse who has held a government job position for an ample time period to have Medicare taxes paid, and are eligible for or receive railroad retirements benefits.
