Kentucky Medicaid is a state and federal program authorized by Title XIX of the Social Security Act to provide health care for eligible, low-income populations. These populations include children, low-income families, pregnant women, the aged and the disabled. Eligibility for these groups is determined by a number of factors, including family size, income and the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Eligibility for people who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and the aged, blind, or disabled are based on additional requirements such as income and resource limits.  

Medicaid offers a number of different programs and services depending on the type of Medicaid you are eligible for and your particular medical needs.
