Do All Hospitals Use Medicaid?

Many but not all hospitals accept Medicaid. Individuals wishing to find out if a hospital or physician accepts Medicaid can find participating hospitals on the frequently-asked-questions page of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services website. The website also allows consumers to compare hospitals and physicians to one another.

Medline Plus also provides an online directory to help patients find hospitals and clinics that accept Medicaid. Some hospitals, such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, provide online information about Medicaid acceptance policies. The types of treatments covered by Medicaid vary by state, but most hospital stays are covered. Medicaid also covers various health care treatments, tests and doctor visits.
