You can dial 211 from your phone which will give you information regarding what is available to you as far as medicaid or any other assistance in your area. I would go to your local office and pick up the paperwork you need in order to get an interview. Your best bet is to fill it out at home, and then get to the office as early as possible the next day with all the information they ask for. Since the offices tend to be very busy, expect a wait and make sure you give yourself enough time. Some offices will schedule an appointment at a later time in which you would then show up for the appointment and talk with a case worker who will then explain what you are eligible for.
