If you have Supplemental Security Income (SSI) Disability, you may get Medicaid coverage automatically or you may have to apply.
You’re considered covered under the health care law. You don’t need to get a Marketplace plan. You won’t have to pay the penalty that people without coverage must pay.
You can apply for Medicaid coverage. But whether you need to apply depends on your state
Some states have expanded their Medicaid programs to cover more people. Even if you get SSI but aren’t automatically eligible for Medicaid, it’s a good idea to apply. This is true even if you’ve been turned down for Medicaid in the past.
