A health insurance program for low-income families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. Some states have expanded their Medicaid programs to cover all adults below certain income levels. The federal government provides part of the funding for Medicaid and sets guidelines, and states administer the program. Medicaid benefits, and program names, vary somewhat between states.
