Medicare and Medicaid are both government programs that provide medical and other health-related services to specific individuals in the United States. Medicare is a federal health insurance available for anyone 65 or older while Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that helps cover medical costs for people with limited income and resources.

Medicaid Waiver Programs are state-run programs that provide health care coverage for low-income individuals and families. Waiver programs like this allow the federal government to waive requirements that normally apply to the Medicaid program, and allow each state to tailor its own program to their specific guidelines.

In general, Medicaid waiver programs cover basic medical expenses, such as doctor visits and prescription drugs. Some programs also cover long-term care expenses. Due to these waivers, states can provide certain services that usually won’t be covered by Medicaid, such as in-home care for those who might otherwise need long-term institutional care.

Texas offers STAR+PLUS, a Medicaid-managed care program for adults with disabilities or who are 65 and older. Long-term care eligibility is dependent on income and assets.
