Medicaid is a federal program that provides states with matching funds to offset some of the costs of health care for eligible low-income individuals including pregnant women, parents and children, people with severe disabilities and what's known as "dual eligibles," low-income seniors and younger persons with disabilities who are enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. State Medicaid agencies administer their own plans, but must meet federal guidelines set by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
