Many people mistakenly believe that Medicaid and Medicare are the same. Actually, they are two different programs. Medicaid is a state-run program that provides hospital and medical coverage for people of limited means and resources. Each state has its own rules about who is eligible and what is covered. Some people qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid. For more information about the Medicaid eligibility, contact your local medical assistance agency, social services or welfare office.
