What Medical Services Does Medicaid Cover?
What medical services does Medicaid cover?
Inpatient hospital care
Inpatient short-term skilled nursing- or rehabilitation-facility care
Outpatient hospital or clinic care
Laboratory and X-ray services
Short-term home healthcare (provided by a home healthcare agency)
Prescription drugs for people not covered by Medicare
For these basic services, Medicaid pays the Medicare deductibles and co-payments for people who are enrolled in both programs. Also, neither Medicaid nor the healthcare provider can charge the patient any co-payment above what Medicaid pays.
In some states, Medicaid coverage for medical care is even broader than what Medicare covers, with certain extra medical services. If a state Medicaid program covers an extra medical service, it can charge the patient a small co-payment for it. The extra coverage offered, and the co-payments for each extra service, vary from state to state but may include:
Eye examinations and glasses
Hearing tests and hearing aids
Physical therapy (beyond what's offered under Medicare)
Nonemergency transportation to and from medical treatment
Some non-Medicare-covered prescription drugs and some nonprescription drugs, including certain vitamins
