NC Medicaid

Medicaid is a health insurance program for low-income individuals and families who cannot afford health care costs. Medicaid provides resources for children with medical complexity that have expenses not covered by traditional insurance, and is NOT based solely on income.

TELL THEM YOU ARE APPLYING FOR “CAP-C” or “Long-Term adult disability Medicaid”. 

*Hint:  You are not required to complete the application before the appointment, but it may speed the process to fill out as much of the application as you can ahead of time.  If you are unable to apply in person, ask if the Care Coordinator can help.
