What does Medicaid pay for in a nursing facility?

Medicaid pays for room and board, as well as nursing care. It also serves as a Medigap policy for those who qualify for coverage. Medicaid will pay for x-ray services, physician services, outpatient hospital services, etc. Unfortunately, the state has been forced to reduce coverage for many services that were formerly covered by Medicaid; a caseworker at the Department of Human Services can assist with providing information regarding coverage.
