    ​Presumptive Eligibility for Correctional Facilities

    Presumptive eligibility is designed to provide a pathway to longer-term Medicaid coverage by allowing participants to have timely access to health care services through an on-site eligibility determination. Under Presumptive Eligibility for correctional facilities, eligible individuals temporarily receive a full range of Maryland Medicaid services upon re-entry into the community. Maryland is the first state to offer presumptive eligibility for individuals within prisons and detention centers.


    For Presumptive Eligibility Participants

    Presumptive Eligibility is very short-term Medical Assistance coverage program.

    You must provide true and accurate information about your income and family circumstances on your Presumptive Eligibility application. If you are approved, you will receive immediate notice of approval from a caseworker. The notice you receive is your proof of coverage. Your coverage will terminate if you do not enroll fully in Maryland Medicaid.
