What is Medicaid?
Medicaid helps pay for healthcare services for children, pregnant women, families with children, and individuals who are aged, blind or disabled who qualify based on citizenship, residency, family income, and sometimes resources and healthcare needs.
Persons applying for Children, Pregnant Women and/or Family Care programs may complete the Healthcare Coverage Application
, which is also used for the Kid Care CHIP program. For a Spanish version of this application, please click here
. The application may be mailed to your local Department of Family Services (DFS) office or Kid Care CHIP or taken to a local DFS office. You can also visit healthlink.wyo.gov
to apply online. An interview is not required.
Pregnant women may also apply for the Presumptive Eiligibility Program through a Qualified Provider. If determined presumptively eligible, they will receive up to sixty (60) days of coverage for outpatient services. For a listing of Qualified Provider locations click here.
Persons applying for Aged, Blind or Disabled programs must complete a Medicaid Aged, Blind or Disabled Programs Application Packet (DHCF-200) and return it to a Department of Family Services office or the Department of Health Long Term Care Unit.

If you are applying for Medicaid along with another Economic Assistance program, please complete the Combined DFS 100 in English or the Combined DFS 100s in Spanish and return to a Department of Family Services office.
