Passive voice is grammatically correct, and this sentence is a good use for it.  I see no need to change this to active voice, which would require the introduction of the government entity that grants Medicaid.

You do have other problems, however. You need a comma after 'level'. I would also recommend changing 'is granted' to 'may be granted'.  Not all people who apply for Medicaid will receive it, even if they are below the poverty level.

 

In North Carolina and all other states, it will not matter the age, employment, disability, etc., if a person is below the federal poverty level, Medicaid may be granted.
