How to Contact Your State Medicaid Department About Medicaid or CHIP
TIP: This page helps you understand how you can contact your state Medicaid department for questions about Medicaid or CHIP. It is meant as a secondary resource for people using our site. The official resource for this information is Medicaid.gov.
Qualifying For Medicaid Under Medicaid Expansion and Current State Based Rules
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, ObamaCare, single adults who make under 138% of the poverty level in states that expanded Medicaid, families with young children, and children in all states may qualify for assistance via Medicaid or CHIP based on income. Other factors are used in states that didn’t expand; see State Medicaid & CHIP Profiles.
TIP: New states are expanding Medicaid each year, so make sure to check out the Current Status of State Medicaid Expansion Decisions.
How to Contact Medicaid
The best way to find out if you and your family qualify for Medicaid or CHIP is to contact your state Medicaid department.
Below is a list of state Medicaid departments from Medicaid.gov. See this link for the information for the federal and regional headquarters as well.
You can also contact HealthCare.Gov during open enrollment to enroll in Medicaid or CHIP. Enrollment is 365 days a year, so there is never a wrong time to see if you qualify for assistance (especially with new states expanding Medicaid every year).
