What is the difference between medicaid and medical?
Is a program that offers temporary medical insurance to people who qualify usually pregnant women, person's with no income or very low income, etc. If medicaid accepts you - you get a medicaid card that you can use for medicine, hospital bills, and doctor visits and bills and it's paid for. I was on medicaid when I was pregnant with my son - they paid for all of my doctor and hospital bills. The medicaid ended after I gave birth - but now my son is on medicaid and all his doctor bills, presrciptions, and hospital visits are covered and paid for by them because I am not working right now.
Medical is relating to the study or practice of medicine; "the medical profession"; "a medical student"; "medical school". Medicaid is health care for the needy; a federally and state-funded program .
Medi-cal is health insurance too. It's what I have. What is the difference between the two types of insurance?
