Medicaid Information for Participants

Idaho Medicaid's Benefit Plans

Medicaid now does more to improve your health, find new health problems early, and manage current health problems. If you are eligible for Medicaid, you will get benefits based on your health needs. For more information about each plan, click on the plan names below.

  1. The Medicaid Basic Plan is for healthy low-income children and adults with eligible dependent children. This plan provides complete health, prevention, and wellness benefits for children and adults who don't have special health needs. Most Medicaid participants will be enrolled in this benefit plan.
  2. The Medicaid Enhanced Plan is for participants with disabilities or special health needs. This plan includes all benefits in the Basic Plan, plus additional benefits.
  3. The Medicare-Medicaid Coordinated Plan is for participants who are eligible and enrolled for both Medicare and Medicaid.

If you are enrolled in the Medicaid Basic Plan and your health changes, you may need to get an assessment to find out whether you should be in the Medicaid Enhanced Plan.
