General Information

About Medicaid

Medicaid was authorized in 1966 for the purpose of strengthening and extending the providison of medical care and services to people whose resources are insufficient to meet such costs. Corrective, preventative, and rehabilitative medical services are provided with the objective of retaining or attaining capability for independence, self-care, and support. These services are extended to elderly, blind, or disabled individuals as well as to caretaker relatives and children to the age of 21 years. Funding is shared by federal, state, and county governments, with eligibility determined at the county level.

North Dakota currently receives a federal funding match of 67.49 percent. The state share of Medicaid costs is 32.51 percent. The Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) changes annually on October 1.
