Medicaid is a federal and state funded health insurance program that pays for covered medical and health care services for eligible adults, children and families.

Adult Medicaid covers aged, blind and disabled individuals.

Family & Children’s Medicaid covers children, parents and pregnant women.

Medicaid Transportation (Non-Emergency Medicaid Transportation) assists Medicaid recipients with transportation costs associated with Medicaid-covered services.

North Carolina is expanding who can get Medicaid starting December 1, 2023.

Adults ages 19-64 earning up to 138% of the federal poverty line (e.g., singles earning about $20,000/year or families of three earning about $34,000/year) may be eligible.

The best way to apply is online through ePASS; you can also apply in-person, phone or mailed applications. The processing time for applications can be up to 45 days. Applications submitted online may be processed faster.

The coverage will be comprehensive, including services like primary care, hospital stays, maternity care, vision and hearing, and more. Medicaid pays for doctor visits, yearly check-ups, emergency care, mental health and more – at little or no cost to you.

Current beneficiaries with full Medicaid coverage won’t see any changes.
