How to Get Free Health Insurance
You may qualify for free or low-cost care through Medicaid based on income and family size. The health care law provides states with additional federal funding to expand their Medicaid programs to cover adults under 65 who make up to 133% of the federal poverty level. Children (18 and under) are eligible up to that income level or higher in all states.
