My character is a homeless dude in present day US (San Francisco) who busk-dances. He isn't receiving any benefits. He breaks his leg, can't dance and applies for medicaid. I've googled online to no avail and emailed the medicaid site - no reply - and can't find answers to these questions (I'm not a US resident).

Would my character need to bring in a doctor's certificate?

Would it come in the form of a cheque he has to pick up, or can it be an automatic payment?

Is there anything that would get in the way of him being eligible, say not having an address?

Roughly how much weekly would he receive?

Any help is appreciated!
