North Dakota Medicaid


Medicaid was authorized in 1966 for the purpose of providing an effective base upon which to provide comprehensive and uniform medical services that enable persons previously limited by their circumstances to receive needed medical care. It is within this broad concept that the Medicaid Program in North Dakota participates with the medical community in attempting to strengthen existing medical services in the state.

Funding is shared by federal and state governments, with eligibility determined at the county level. Medicaid pays for health services for qualifying families with children, and people who are pregnant, elderly, or disabled.
