Medicaid provides health- and long-term care coverage to children, young adults, and older people with low incomes and few assets, or those impoverished by the high costs of health care. Especially through its funding for long-term care services - such as nursing home, home care, and hospice - Medicaid is a major source of financing for end-of-life care, the period of time when patients are terminally ill.
