Medicaid is the United States health program for certain people and families with low incomes and resources. It is jointly funded by the state and federal governments, and is managed by the states. People served by Medicaid are U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents, including low-income adults, their children, and people with certain disabilities. The Hawai’i Med-QUEST Program (QUEST) is a Medicaid managed care program where the State pays health plans to provide coverage of medical and mental health services. Dental Services are provided on a fee-for-service income Hawai’i residents since January 1966. The program provides coverage for individuals who are age 65 and over, or under age 65 who are blind or disabled. All other individuals are covered by QUEST.
