The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has provided many Americans with access to affordable health insurance. In fact, as of the first quarter of 2018, nearly 10 million Americans have signed up for this coverage through the new marketplaces or expanded Medicaid programs created by the ACA. But what if you don’t qualify for any government financial help? Or what if you live in a state that hasn’t expanded Medicaid yet? In those cases, getting affordable health insurance can be very difficult without access to other options. Fortunately, there is another way… With our new postcard program, anyone in need of affordable health insurance can now apply for free coverage through the state-run Medicaid program. This unique service makes it easy for anyone living below poverty level and without any special medical conditions to apply for free medical care. Here’s how it works…
How to Get Free Medicaid Health Insurance Through The Postcard Program
If you need Medicaid but don’t qualify for coverage through the Obamacare exchanges, you may still be able to get health insurance through our new postcard program. Anyone with low income and limited health care needs may apply for Medicaid through our postcard program. There is no income limit for Medicaid eligibility. Anyone who meets the requirements to receive Medicaid coverage (i.e., having low income and little or no health insurance) can now apply online. To begin the process, you’ll need to print out a FREE postcard from our website. Next, write a short, personal message explaining your situation and include relevant medical information, like your current condition and medications. Finally, send your postcard and supporting documents to the address on the card.
Important Information You’ll Need To Apply
– Your name, current address, and phone number – A short, personal message explaining your situation – A picture of your medical condition(s) and relevant medications – A copy of your income tax return (W-2) or other financial documents proving your monthly income – A copy of your birth certificate or other documents proving citizenship
Step 1: Print out your FREE Postcard !!!
You’ll find a link to the FREE postcard on our website. Once you have the postcard in hand, follow the same steps outlined above to apply for Medicaid coverage.
Step 2: Write a short, personal message explaining your situation
When you’re ready to apply, first open your postcard. Then carefully read the instructions and write a short, personal message explaining your situation and including relevant medical information, like your current condition and medications.
Step 3: Mail your completed form and supporting documents to the right address
Once you have completed the application and mailed your postcard, you will receive a paper response directing you to send your application and supporting documents to the right address. Follow the directions exactly to ensure your application is processed successfully.
Step 4: Wait for your NEW health coverage to arrive in the mail
Medicaid coverage will typically be delivered to your home via the U.S. Postal Service. You can expect to wait anywhere from a few days to a few weeks for your coverage to arrive in the mail. When it does arrive, simply keep the card and your receipt with you. Present them to any health care provider that you visit so that you don’t have to explain to them why you are receiving free medical care.
If you would like to find out if you qualify for Medicaid coverage in your state, call your state’s Medicaid office and ask about coverage for people with limited income. Make sure to follow all the instructions carefully to ensure your application is processed successfully. Once your postcard and application are received and processed, you will typically receive a letter in the mail confirming your coverage. Keep the letter and card with you to help you navigate any health care providers that treat Medicaid patients.
