Medicaid eligibility is based on two primary factors — income and family size. Meeting Medicaid qualifications provides you with free or low-cost health insurance, making signing up for an individual healthcare plan in the Health Insurance Marketplace unnecessary.
Coverage is provided for*:
- Low-income people, families and children
- Pregnant women
- The blind
- People with disabilities
- And more
*Some exceptions will apply.

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance program that currently covers more than 1 million individuals in North Carolina. In North Carolina, Medicaid includes:
- Baby Love (Prenatal and infant health care)
- Health Check (Children up to age 21)
- Carolina ACCESS (Managed care)
- Community alternatives to institutionalization, providing home care and community care
At the time, North Carolina has not chosen to expand Medicaid coverage under the new healthcare reform. For this reason, any NC residents who previously did not qualify for Medicaid will most likely not qualify under the Affordable Care Act.
Of course, individuals are still encouraged to apply for North Carolina Medicaid, particularly if there have been any changes to household income or family size. Need more information on your coverage? Just call us and ask.
