Montana Medicaid is a joint federal-state program that pays for a broad range of medically necessary health care and long-term care for eligible low-income Montanans.

Medicaid is governed under broad national guidelines, but each state can establish its own eligibility standards, decide what services to cover and for how long, and set the rate of payment for services. In Montana, the Medicaid program is administered by the Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS).

To be eligible for Montana Medicaid, you must meet financial requirements that take into account your income, assets, and resources. You must be a Montana resident and a U.S. citizen (or qualified non-citizen), and you must fall into one of the following groups:

  • Parents or other related adults with dependent children under age 19
  • Children
  • Pregnant women
  • Women diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer or pre-cancer
  • People aged 65 or older
  • People who are blind or disabled (using Social Security criteria)

Medicaid recipients receive either full or basic Medicaid coverage based on which eligibility group they fall into. Those who are eligible for full coverage are able to get coverage for all services that Medicaid covers, assuming they are medically necessary. Full Medicaid is provided to recipients who are:

  • Under age 21
  • Blind or disabled
  • Age 65 or older
  • Pregnant

Everyone else receives basic Medicaid coverage. Basic Medicaid covers all Montana Medicaid services except for dental care, audiology services, eyeglasses and vision exams, durable medical equipment, and personal care services in the individual’s home. Services excluded under basic Medicaid may be covered if necessary for employment or in emergency situations.
