Paper Application

You may also mail or bring the completed Medicaid Application to the Currituck County Department of Social Services. For convenience, there is also drop box located outside the front entrance where applications can be dropped off after normal business hours. This will begin the application process.

Additional forms will be required to be completed after the county evaluates your initial application for Medicaid.  The forms are available in English and Spanish.

If possible, take the items listed below with you if you go to the Department of Social Services office to apply.
