• Medicaid is state and federally funded health care coverage.
  • Kinship caregivers, both relative and non-relative, may apply for a Medicaid card for the child or sibling group in their care.
  • Your income and assets will not be considered when determining eligibility unless you choose to apply for yourself as well.
  • If you have qualified for cash assistance, you will automatically qualify for a Medicaid card.
