Medicaid provides medical assistance to low-income people. In addition to paying for some basic medical expenses, it helps pay for prescription drugs, dental work, vision care, mental health treatment, nursing home costs, long-term care, and rehabilitation services.

The federal government funds Medicaid through both state and federal programs. States are required by law to provide coverage for certain groups of needy people, including children, pregnant women and parents, the elderly, blind, disabled, and families with very young kids. Some states provide additional coverage for poor working families.

States must meet specific requirements set out in the Social Security Act, including having a plan approved by the Health Insurance Exchange Authority (HIXA). The MA program is used by most states to fund their plans. Federal law requires each state to have a system for managed care organizations (MCOs), which will administer the MA program. These MCOs work with providers to provide the services that are needed.

About Philadelphia

Philadelphia, often called Philly, is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the sixth-largest city in the U.S., the second-largest city in both the Northeast megalopolis and Mid-Atlantic regions after New York City. Since 1854, the city has been coextensive with Philadelphia County, the most populous county in Pennsylvania and the urban core of the Delaware Valley, the nation's seventh-largest and one of world's largest metropolitan regions, with 6.245 million residents as of 2020. The city's population as of the 2020 census was 1,603,797, and over 56 million people live within 250 mi (400 km) of Philadelphia.Philadelphia was founded in 1682 by William Penn, an English Quaker. The city served as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony during the British colonial era and went on to play a historic and vital role as the central meeting place for the nation's founding fathers whose plans and actions in Philadelphia ultimately inspired the American Revolution and the nation's independence. Philadelphia hosted the First Continental Congress in 1774 following the Boston Tea Party, preserved the Liberty Bell, and hosted the Second Continental Congress during which the founders signed the Declaration of Independence, which historian Joseph Ellis has described as "the most potent and consequential words in American history".
