About this resource
Follow the directions on the PDF on the website. You will need to complete a one-page application. Medicaid is basic health insurance that is available to foster youth or former foster youth who are eligible. The information provided should help you apply. Apply for health care by downloading the application, printing it, filling it out and sending it to the provided address on the application. Call FosterClub if you need assistance with this process.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires states to provide young adults under 26 with free health care if they were in foster care at age 18 or older. This ensures that former foster youth can access the health care services they need.
