Minnesota Health Care Programs

Providing Health Care Coverage and Resources for Minnesotans
   

More than half a million Minnesotans have health care coverage through Minnesota Health Care Programs. Minnesota provides health care programs to meet the health care needs of: Families with children under 21, pregnant women and newborns, adults without children, adults with disabilities, people age 65 and older, people living in nursing homes.

    
Most Minnesota Health Care Programs have income and assest limits.     

Medical Assistance is Minnesota’s Medicaid program for low-income families with children, seniors and people with disabilities.

 

                  
General Assistance Medical Care provides health care coverage for low-income adults, ages 21 – 64, who have no dependent children and who do not qualify for Medical Assistance.

           
MinnesotaCare is a subsidized health insurance program for Minnesota residents who do not have access to affordable health care coverage.
           
Prescription Drug and Medicare-Related Programs help Medicare enrollees pay for prescription drugs and their Medicare premiums.

           
Most programs provide comprehensive coverage for health care services including preventive care, hospitalization, mental health and chemical dependency services, prescription drugs and dental care. There are times when one of Minnesota’s health care programs cannot meet the needs of our residents. During these times, there are other resources available.
