Medicaid By State: Alternative Names and Contact Information

Last updated: October 11, 2017

In the table below are direct links to each states’ Medicaid office 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 resource for application assistance. Often times, private advisors are in a better position to counsel individuals on their Medicaid eligibility and assist in the process. One can use our free service to find the most appropriate and affordable Medicaid planning advisor.

One should also be aware that since Medicaid is administered at the state level, many states refer to their Medicaid programs using alternative names. In addition to the alternative names in the table below, several states refer to their Medicaid program as their State Plan or as Title XIX. One should also be aware that eligibility requirements and available programs differ based on the state in which one resides.
