FAQs

How do I apply for Medicaid?

 It depends on which Medicaid program you would like to apply for. If you are applying for Medicaid for children, pregnant women or a parent/caretaker, or if you are applying for Plan First family planning the only program, you may file a paper application or you may go online to https://insurealabama.adph.state.al.us/. If you want to apply for help in paying your Medicare premiums, for a nursing home or a program for the elderly or disabled, you will need to send an application to one of Medicaid's 11 district offices. If you want to apply for the Supplemental Security Income program (SSI), you will need to contact the Social Security Administration office in your area. A link to these is found under "Contacts for Applicants." 

Where can I go to put in an application?

 You can go online to www.insurealabama.org or print out and fill out an application and mail it in. To print out an application form, go to www.medicaid.alabama.gov > Resources > Forms Library > Applicant Forms or pick up a form from a Medicaid worker at a local health department. 

Who decides if a person qualifies for Medicaid?

 Medicaid eligibility is determined by several different agencies. The federal Social Security Administration certifies aged, blind or disabled people who have very low income and qualify for cash assistance through the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program. The Alabama Department of Human Resources certifies foster children and children who receive state or federal adoption assistance. Medicaid certifies the remaining groups.
