Exploring the reasons you might need Medicaid assistance

On Behalf of | Dec 27, 2023 | Long Term Care Planning

Access to healthcare is a fundamental aspect of well-being, and Medicaid serves as a lifeline for individuals facing specific circumstances. Yet many people are not aware of what qualifies them to receive this assistance.

It is important to understand when you or someone you care for is eligible for Medicaid coverage.

Low income

People with low incomes often rely on Medicaid for essential healthcare. Medicaid helps bridge the financial gap. Medicaid extends a helping hand to those who may find it challenging to afford medical expenses, ensuring that financial constraints do not compromise access to necessary treatments and preventive care.


People with disabilities often require specialized healthcare services and support. Medicaid steps in to cover the costs of disability-related medical treatments, assistive devices and other necessary accommodations. This ensures that people with disabilities can access the care they need to lead fulfilling lives.

Chronic illness

Chronic illnesses can place a significant burden on individuals and their families. Medicaid becomes an important resource for those managing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer. It offers financial assistance for ongoing medical treatments, prescription medications and necessary therapies to improve health outcomes.

Long-term care

As people age, the need for long-term care may arise. Medicaid plays a key role in supporting aging populations by covering the costs of nursing home care, assisted living and home-based care services. This assistance ensures that seniors can receive the care and support necessary for a dignified and comfortable life.

With nearly 2 million enrollees in Massachusetts, the state’s Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program counterparts represent an important health resource for aging residents to tap.
