Medicaid / Health Insurance

Medicaid provides payment for health care to people with low-income and disabilities for necessary medical services. Medicaid in Delaware provides services to children with special healthcare needs without regard to family income. Medicaid pays for doctor's visits, hospital care, labs, prescription drugs, transportation, routine shots for children, and mental health and substance abuse services. The list below includes Medicaid Managed Care Providers as well as organizations who can assist you if your need help understanding and navigating Medicaid.

You can find out if you qualify for Medicaid or other medical assistance programs by speaking with a representative at your local State Service Center.
