Medicaid is medical insurance for people with limited incomes. Many Medicaid eligible employees are either not aware this benefit is available to them at no cost or they don't know how to enroll. Benestream will identity these employees and enroll them. Employees enrolled on a Medicaid plan will count toward the group's medical insurance participation requirement, a great value to the Employer.
