Medicaid provides a broad level of health insurance coverage, including doctor visits, hospital expenses, nursing home care, home health care, and the like. Medicaid also covers long-term care costs, both in a nursing home and at-home care. Medicare does not provide this coverage.
Prescription drugs are not covered by Medicaid. But if you're eligible for Medicaid, the program may pay the premium for Medicare Part D, the Medicare prescription drug plan.
