    Apply for Medicaid

    You can find information on this page about how to apply for Maryland Medicaid programs. There are several programs under Maryland Medicaid. Each program provides one of three types of medical assistance - health coverage, long term services and supports or assistance with Medicare premiums, deductibles and cost-sharing  - to serve the health needs of different eligible groups of people.  

    You can apply for Medicaid at any time. If you are eligible, you can enroll year-round. Individuals who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are automatically eligible and do not need to apply. 

    For information about how to apply for the Medicaid program that best meets your needs, see the ways to apply for different programs below.

    In March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) stopped Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (MCHP) redeterminations because of the federal public health emergency (PHE). At the end of the PHE, all Medicaid and MCHP enrollees will need to renew their Medicaid coverage. Enrollees will receive a notice from Maryland Health Connection during the next 12 months. 

    For information about how to prepare for the end of the PHE, select the Prepare for Renewal tab below.​
