Medicaid is a public health care program funded by the state and federal government. It provides healthcare coverage to individuals and families with limited income, children, pregnant women and people who are aged, blind or who have disabilities. Services may differ in each state because they have some options on which groups and what income levels they will cover for Medicaid.  

If your income is too high for traditional Medicaid, you may qualify for a Waiver which can waive, or set aside, some of the strict eligibility requirements of traditional Medicaid. Eligibility for a waiver is tied to the income and resources of the individual, not the family.

The Complex Care Center at Cincinnati Children’s provides information to help families and healthcare providers identify sources of financial assistance.
