Medicaid Basics and Benefits

You may qualify for free or low-cost health coverage.



You or members of your family may qualify for Medicaid through Maryland Health Connection and receive free or low-cost health care. Enrollment in Medicaid and the Maryland Children's Health Program (MCHP) is year-round.

If anyone in your family is eligible for Medicaid, coverage will be effective back to the first day of the month in which you applied.
