Medicaid By State: Alternative Names and Contact Information

Last updated: July 10, 2023

Below are direct links to each states’ Medicaid website. For those hoping to qualify for Medicaid and looking for assistance with the application process, it is important to recognize that the state is not always the best option for assistance. Often times, private advisors are in a better position to counsel individuals on their Medicaid eligibility and assist in the process.

Since Medicaid is administered at the state level, many states refer to their Medicaid programs by alternative names. In addition to the names listed below, states may refer to their Medicaid program as their State Plan or as Title XIX. Not covered here, Medicaid eligibility criteria and available programs are state-specific.
