Alaska Medicaid is a federal program administered by the State of Alaska. It provides basic health and long-term care services for low-income Alaskans who would otherwise be unable to purchase coverage through the Marketplace. Medicaid also provides health coverage programs that serve families, children, pregnant women, adults without children, seniors, and people living with disabilities.
HEALTH INSURANCE MARKETPLACE
OPEN ENROLLMENT: usually November 1 to January 15
The Health Insurance Marketplace, sometimes known as the health insurance "exchange," helps people without health coverage enroll in health plan online, by phone, or with a paper application. If the open enrollment period has passed, you may qualify for a special enrollment period with a qualifying life event.
CHRONIC & ACUTE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE (CAMA) PROGRAM
This state-funded program is designed to help low-income Alaskans who have specific illnesses (e.g., terminal illness; cancer requiring chemotherapy; chronic diabetes; chronic seizure disorders; chronic mental illness; chronic hypertension).
