With Eligibility for Medicaid, You Can Now Get Care Against Zika Virus


The Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS) announced on June 1, 2016 that Medicaid funds can now be used to help combat the Zika virus. This virus, transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes, causes fever, rashes and joint pain in adults. It is rarely a cause of death, but has serious health consequences on pregnant women and their unborn.

In a five-page bulletin, the CMCS describes how individuals with eligibility for Medicaid can protect themselves from the virus, undergo tests to see if they have contracted it and receive treatment in case they do.
