Medicaid is a social health care program funded by the Government for low-income families and individuals. Qualification for Medicaid varies by state and is generally based on household income relative to Federal Poverty Level income guidelines.
If you thought you might qualify for Medicaid, but it turns out you make to much money, there is a good chance you may still qualify for income based subsidies or cost sharing reductions via Obamacare plans. Nationally more than 80% of those shopping for health insurance via healthcare marketplace qualified for subsidies. But make sure you apply on-exchange, that is the only place you can received subsidized health plans.
