Medicaid in South Carolina*

"Healthy Connections (Medicaid) is South Carolina's grant-in-aid program by which the federal and state governments share the cost of providing medical care for needy persons who have low income. Title XIX of the Social Security Act that was signed into law by the president on July 30, 1965 authorized the program. Congress has continually changed the Medicaid program since it was created and enacted by legislation. South Carolina began participation in the Medicaid program in July 1968."
