Is Vital for me?
Check if you are:

- Are part of Federal Medicaid Program: be over age 65; blind or disabled and pregnant women.
- Children under the CHIP Program.
- Government employees, retirees and their dependents.

- Domestic violence survivor. A Women’s Advocate Office note is needed.
Call or visit a Medicaid Office near you. They will let you know if you qualify. When that happens, they will give you a form. That form is called MA-10. This is your proof of eligibility. The MA-10 form will show the date that your benefits start. You will receive a welcome letter to Vital, from the Health Plan chosen for you.
You will receive your ID card by mail within five (5) business days.
If you do not receive the card you can still get your health checked. If you need to see a doctor or visit an emergency room, show the MA-10 form. The doctor office or facility has to service Vital. Your doctor will check that your name is on the MA-10, that it is signed and that you are good to receive services.
