Maryland residents have seen the economy drastically improve over the last few years but there are still many struggling to make ends meet with money. Rather than assuming there is no financial help out there it might be smart to submit a Medicaid application in 2012 or 2013. Before going through the process it might be wise to check out some of the income limits for specific Medicaid programs throughout the state.

What are the Income Limits to Get Medicaid in 2012 or 2013?
Remember that each state is a little bit different when it comes to income and assets limits to get Medicaid. If you are savvy with a computer I would suggest using http://mmcp.dhmh.maryland.gov/ to get all your information. You will be very surprised to find that every single program has plenty of information available. The income guidelines for MCHP (Maryland Childrens Health Program) can be very confusing so I would suggest looking over this particular PDF file quite a bit. After doing a little bit of homework you will better understand what you can make and still qualify for Medicaid this year.
Different Maryland Medicaid Medical Programs Available
Although most people think that Medicaid is simply one program you must remember that there are many programs within the program. Some pregnant women will qualify, some low income families will qualify and some seniors will qualify. There are a few other demographics that may also get some medical assistance if they are struggling. It is important to note that the Federal Government and state governments are spending a lot of taxpayers money to make certain that people remain healthy and have healthcare coverage.
Some of the services that are covered by Medicaid include:
- Low-cost or free prescriptions;
- Doctor visits;
- Emergency room visits;
- Hospital stays;
- X-ray and lab services; and,
- Many other services.
