Rebecca Myers qualifies for Medicaid because she is a single mother with no health insurance. Rebecca is in a "managed care program" under Medicaid and reports easy access to health care, especially for her 12-year-old son.
When she was in another state and became sick, she discovered Michigan Medicaid did not cover care when she got sick, unlike private insurance. Rebecca would like to make more money to afford other health care options but she would lose her Medicaid coverage because of its income limitations.
