Where To Get More Information

You can lead more at the Department of Human Services about what exactly is offered under Medicaid as a service. The agency is now headed up Kathleen Sebelius. Mrs. Sebelius understands the problems that Medicaid patients face when they are traveling abroad in particular. It is hard to say whether this issue will be properly addressed in any health care reform that makes its way through Congress. I know for a fact that Medicare eligible citizens cannot use their Medicare cards when traveling overseas as well. Medicaid patients also find it nearly impossible to receive good dental insurance when they are traveling or not. This is another issue that seems to have been neglected by legislators for far too long.

If you want to have a better understanding of issues such as this, you can go to websites hhs.gov. They are even still looking for new people to work in some of the state Medicaid agencies. So if you feel passionate about the issue of delivering health care to the poor, the application process at HHS is something you should consider.
