Is There a Difference Between Medicare & Medicaid?
While both Medicaid and Medicare provide healthcare assistance to eligible individuals, the two programs are operated and funded by separate parts of the government and serve different groups of people:
- Medicare: Provides health coverage to people 65 and older or under 65 with a disability, regardless of income
- Medicaid: Provides long-term medical coverage for low-income individuals
If you qualify for Medicare and Medicaid, then you can take advantage of both programs to increase your level of health coverage and lower your costs.
What Does Medicaid Cover?
The Massachusetts Medicaid program covers various services. Children and adults alike can receive annual well-check exams and other services.
Medicaid generally covers the following:
- Medical, support, and prescription costs of long-term nursing home care
- Community-based alternatives to nursing home care
- Nursing services
- Personal assistance services
- Adaptive aids
- Medical supplies
- Assisted living
- Minor home modifications
- Respite care
