Medicaid Coverage

Prescriptions and Medical Equipment

The emergency Medicaid coverage also includes prescription drugs. The approved list of medications is continually updated as new drugs are approved by the FDA and deemed cost-effective in handling medical conditions. Understandably, there may be restrictions and limitations on certain medications.

Additionally, medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME) that doctors and healthcare providers prescribe for use in the home is also covered. This may include crutches, nebulizers, wheelchairs, and oxygen equipment, which align with the program’s overall objective of maintaining or improving health status.

Maternity Care, Family Planning, and Rehabilitation Services

Pregnant women are a significant focus for emergency Medicaid. Maternity-related services like pregnancy tests, prenatal and postnatal care, labor and delivery services are provided. Related to this, family planning services are also covered, offering consultations, contraceptives, and infertility treatments.

Furthermore, emergency Medicaid in Montana provides coverage for habilitation and rehabilitation services. These are designed to assist individuals with disabilities or those recovering from illnesses, injuries, or surgeries. Therapies may include physical, occupational, and speech-language pathology services.

Dental Care

Emergency dental care is also included in this program’s coverage. Certain oral surgeries essential to a patient’s health may also be covered upon receiving pre-approval.
