Who can get Medicaid? Find out if you’re eligible

Published on September 7, 2017

Health coverage is important whether you’re sick or healthy. Here are 5 ways your health insurance can help you maximize your health and well-being:

  • Take advantage of free preventive services: You may be able to get an annual visit or recommended preventive services for free, like the flu shot and depression screening.

  • Keep all your health information in one place: Use our “From Coverage to Care: A Roadmap to Better Care and a Healthier You” (PDF) to keep track of your coverage information, your providers, and your health. Use the checklist in the back to track your results.

  • Understand your insurance membership package: You probably got a membership package with information about your coverage and an insurance card. Read your materials carefully. You may need them when you see a provider or when you call your insurance company with questions. Never let anyone else use your insurance card.

  • Use an provider: Not all types of providers and facilities take all insurance plans or types of coverage, and most of the time, you’ll pay less to see a provider in your network. Call the office before you go to make sure they see patients with your coverage. If you’re in an emergency or life-threatening situation, call 9-1-1.

  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle at home, at work, and in the community: Health insurance is important, but there’s no substitute for a healthy lifestyle. Make time for physical activity, healthy eating, relaxation, and sleep.
