Do you qualify for Medicaid?
To qualify for Medicaid, an individual must meet certain eligibility criteria. In Georgia, there are over twenty different coverage categories of Medicaid, known as classes of assistance, and each one has its own set of eligibility criteria.
A person’s living arrangement, types and amounts of income, marital status, and prior Medicaid coverage, among other factors, determine qualifications of assistance. You can apply for Medicaid at your local Department of Family & Children's Service (DFCS) office.
