Traditional Medicaid is a program created to provide health care coverage to individuals with low income. Like other health care programs, eligibility and coverage are based on the member's aid category. Members in the following categories will be covered by Traditional Medicaid:
- Members eligible for home and community-based services
- Members who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid
- Members in nursing homes, intermediate care facilities for the intellectually disabled, and state-operated facilities
Some individuals may be eligible for emergency services only.
When you apply for Medicaid, you will automatically be enrolled in the program that is right for you.
Traditional Medicaid includes all covered services that are covered under Package A. Refer to the Indiana Medicaid Covered Services webpage for a list of covered services.
