Katie Beckett Medicaid is a special eligibility process that allows certain children with long-term disabilities, mental illness, or complex medical needs, living at home with their families, to obtain a ForwardHealth card.
Children who are not eligible for other Medicaid programs because the income or assets of their parents are too high may be eligible for Katie Beckett Medicaid. A child may be eligible for this source of Medicaid even if they are currently covered under a private health insurance policy.
