Medical Assistance coverage

Medical Assistance (MA) may pay for medical bills going back three months from the date we get your application.

The specific program or benefit set that you qualify for determines:

  • Which health care services are covered
  • If there are any limits on coverage
  • What you have to pay, if anything

If you are enrolled in a health plan, you must get services from providers in your health plan's network.

If you are not enrolled in a health plan, you get services on a fee-for-service basis from providers who accept MA.

You can also print a summary of covered services (PDF) that includes both MA and MinnesotaCare.
