Idaho Medicaid makes it possible for children and adults with low incomes to get and stay healthy. It provides essential and comprehensive healthcare for expectant mothers, helps people with disabilities live independent lives, supports our seniors, and ensures children receive regular check-ups. Many Idahoans with low incomes work in jobs that do not offer health coverage.
Medicaid allows individuals to see a doctor when they are sick, receive preventive care, purchase medications, and go to the hospital. Medicaid reduces state and county uncompensated care costs, saves tax payer dollars, and improves access to care in rural areas. Families with Medicaid do not have to choose between going to the doctor, buying groceries, or paying the rent.
