Apply For Medicaid
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.
Applications are taken weekdays at your local office of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources. For your convenience, you may wish to call for an appointment. Most local hospitals and primary care clinics have staff available to assist you in making application.
If, because of a physical handicap or disability, you are unable to go to the local office, you may request a staff person to visit your home and take the application. To request a home visit, call your local office of the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources or call the Office of Client Services toll free at (800) 642-8589.
