How It Works
Medicaid is a health insurance program that pays medical bills for eligible low-income families and for eligible aged, blind and/or disabled people whose income is insufficient to meet the cost of necessary medical services. Medicaid is run by the Delaware Division of Medicaid & Medical Assistance (DMMA) and pays medical bills with State and Federal tax money.
