Help/Search Tips

To get the best results when searching the Alabama Medicaid Web site, try some of the tips below. For additional assistance, contact the webmaster at (334) 353-4099 or at webwork@medicaid.alabama.gov

Things to Remember:

  • Searches are not case-sensitive (it doesn't matter whether you capitalize the words or not).
  • You may include "not," "and" or "or" in your search to make it more specific (This is called Boolean logic).
  • Phrase-searching is not currently available.
  • A search or keyword must have at least two characters.
  • Try to choose keywords that best describe what you are searching for.
  • If you do not get the results you are expecting, try a different set of words or fewer words.

Search Examples:

  • Type a single keyword: application  Every word on a page is indexed on the computer hosting the site, so try to choose a word that will be fairly specific to your area of interest.  If matches to your word are found, a list of matching pages will be displayed.
  • Search by more than one word: nursing home applications
    The search engine only allows for searching by words rather than by phrases. For example, if you search for nursing home applications, the search engine will show all pages with nursing, home and applications regardless of the word order. Familiar words such as "for" or "to" are not indexed and will be ignored. The search results will include relevant documents even if they include only one word from your original search.
  • Search results
    Once you submit the search, a list of documents containing your query will appear. The results will be ranked with the highest scoring pages listed first. Pages are given a "score" by the search engine according to how often and where the word appears. For example, a word in a page title will score higher than a word in the page text. Usually a higher scoring page is more likely to be relevant to your search.
