Emergency Medical Assistance (EMA) For Non-Citizens

Non-citizens, who are Medicaid eligible except for their citizenship status, may be eligible for Medicaid to cover a serious medical emergency.  This includes the emergency labor and delivery of a child.  Before Medicaid may be authorized, applicants must provide proof from a medical professional stating the treatment was due to an emergency condition.  The proof also must include the date(s) of the emergency.
