Medicaid pays for medically necessary physical and mental health services provided by hospitals, physicians and other providers; rural health clinics; and federally qualified health centers. Services include:
- ambulance services
- home health
- lab work
- long term care
- medical supplies and equipment
- physical and other therapies
Medicaid also pays some dental, chiropractic and transportation costs. Due to state budget cuts, Medicaid no longer covers dentures or eyeglasses for adults.
For adults who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, Medicaid covers classes of drugs not covered by Medicare Part D.
Young adults under the age of 21 who are enrolled in Medicaid also qualify for extra benefits under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) program. EPSDT services include dental, mental health, development and specialty services.
