What is Medicaid SSI?
- Medicaid SSI is a health insurance program for people that get Medicaid SSI or SSI-related Medicaid.
- To be in the program you must have a disability (determined by the Disability Determination Bureau) and meet other requirements. See those requirements here.
A Care Manager works with you to assess your current health and where you may be at risk. The Care Manager creates a care plan with you and/or your guardian. The care plan will help you find health care services to keep you healthy and meet any ongoing needs.
You will also choose a primary care clinic. They help you manage your health conditions. Depending on your needs, the program may cover:
- Doctor visits
- Hospital care
- Eye care and eye glasses
- Outpatient care
- Emergency care
- Care when you are pregnant
- Medical equipment and supplies
- Mental health services
- Hearing services and hearing aids
- Family planning services
- Home health care
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Alcohol and other drug abuse services
The program may also match you up with other social services such as job training, rides, or wellness.
The Care Manager works with you to create a care plan. If your health changes during the year, your Care Manager will look at your needs again. You may also get other support to help you improve or manage chronic conditions.
