What it offers

All Medicaid benefits, including:

  • Doctor’s visits
  • Drugs ordered by a doctor
  • Lab and X-ray charges
  • Hospital care
  • Vision and hearing care
  • Dental care

Medicaid might help pay for medical services a person got 3 months before applying for SSI. To find out, they must fill out an application for Medicaid — even if they already have Medicaid.
