How to Apply for Medicaid

Medicaid is a high quality health insurance program with no monthly premium, no annual deductible and only modest copayments for health care services.  Since January 2014, eligibility is based on reported income and family size.  You do not need to have a child to quality.  Assets are not counted.

You can apply for Medicaid any time during the year by visiting your local Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) or go to the West Virginia inRoads website to be pre-screened and apply for Medicaid and other West Virginia benefits programs.
