Applying for medicaid health insurance isn't that hard, but make sure you always get them the information they ask for by the deadline they give you. I made the mistake of not doing this, and it was a huge headache.
When I first applied, I was asked to provide the birth certificate for my youngest child, and I took too long in getting it to them. My other children were accepted and began receiving medicaid benefits, but my youngest had no coverage.
I made phone calls, talked to several people, faxed the birth certificate multiple times, and it took over a year for me to get coverage for her.
Just make sure you do everything on time to avoid this kind of problem. It was not fun.
