Medicaid is the federal government’s healthcare system designed to provide health care coverage for low-income Americans. Medicare is the federal government’s healthcare insurance program for adults over 65 years old or younger adults with a disability.
The federal government’s Medicaid and Medicare systems have very strict rules and regulations involving how these services must be provided and billed for by medical providers. State laws may also apply in certain circumstances.
