State-Funded Insurance (i.e. Medicaid)

72 million Americans are served by a federal healthcare coverage program called Medicaid.4 This program is primarily for low income adults and their children, but it is also available to people with certain types of disabilities and to the elderly. This federal program is only partially funded by the federal government, and each state administers Medicaid separately.4

If you were turned down for Medicaid before, you may be eligible now, even if your financial situation is unchanged, if you last applied before the Affordable Care Act was passed. It raised the income and asset ceilings to allow more people into the program. While not all treatment centers take Medicaid, 235 centers in Wisconsin do, making up 86.1 percent of the centers in the state.1
