Answer:  Medicaid is a program for medical-care coverage to the indigent. Eligibility for Medicaid is determined based upon the assets and income of the applicant and applicant spouse.

Medicare is an entitlement program based on whether a worker or their spouse paid adequately into the system during their lifetime. Medicare generally covers hospitalization, durable medical equipment, hospice, and doctor’s visits.
