If You Receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
If you are receiving a check from Supplemental Security Income Program, you are automatically eligible for Medicaid and should receive a medical card from the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources.

If You DO NOT Receive SSI
If you are not receiving an SSI check, you must apply for Medicaid benefits.
