About PMAP

UCare Prepaid Medical Assistance Program (PMAP), also known as Medicaid, is a plan for people with lower incomes. The program pays for most of your covered health care costs for eligible people in your household.

Most people are responsible for small copays for covered office visits and prescriptions. Medicaid health plans like UCare waive the monthly Medicaid deductible (the amount you must pay before your plan kicks in), which saves you money.
