Alabama Medicaid Program

Alabama Medicaid The Alabama Medicaid Agency represents a state/federal program that pays for medical and long-term health care services for low-income and pregnant women, children, qualified people on Medicare, residents with disabilities and nursing home residents. Alabama residents must meet certain income and other Medicaid eligibility requirements. Alabama Medicaid Eligibility Recipients of Alabama Medicaid must be a resident of Alabama and a U.S. citizen.  There also other necessary requirements to receive Alabama Medicaid such as age, income levels and medical and financial resource limits for various programs.  Pregnant women and children under the age of 19 in families who have income below a certain threshold may also be eligible for Alabama Medicaid.  Households with children under 19 years of age living in home may also be eligible if the family has a very low income level.  For more information you can call Alabama Medicaid at 1-800-362-1504. QTool Alabama makes it easy for you to have the medical care you need by providing electronic health records called QTool.  QTool allows your physician to access your medical records and history electronically by using computer.  QTool permits your physician to review your medical history, medicines, tests and other medical care that you have received throughout your life.  This type of access prevents duplication of medical treatments.  Your private QTool medical information is safe and secure.  Only medical providers who need your information and care for you can review your electronic health records.  QTool is a free Alabama Medicaid benefit for residents and you do not need to do anything to begin the process.  Alabama Medicaid Covered Services Alabama services Dental services Physician services Eye care services for adults Eye care services for children under 21 years of age Family planning services Hearing services for children under age 21 Home health services Hospice services Hospital services inpatient care Hospital services outpatient care Hospital services psychiatric care Laboratory and X-Ray services Maternity services Mental health services Nurse midwife services Nursing home care services Out of state services Prescription drugs Transplant services Well child checkup program Current Alabama Medicaid Co-payments Physician visits $1.00 per visit Health care center visits $1.00 per visit Rural health clinic visits $1.00 per visit Hospital inpatient $50.00 per visit Hospital outpatient $3.00 per visit Prescription drugs $0.50 – 3.00 per visit Medical equipment $3.00 per visit Supplies $1.00 per visit Ambulatory surgical centers $3.00 per visit Alabama Medicaid Providers Alabama Medicaid providers are any physician who is licensed by the state board.  The Alabama Medicaid office will process all provider applications.  Primary care physicians that participate in the Patient 1rst program are also eligible.
