Keeping Medicaid After Marriage

I have a child that is on Medicaid, but I'm getting married to a man that is not my child's father. Would I lose my son's Medicaid because of getting married even though he is not the father or will they still base it off just my income?

If you live together he becomes part of your household and his income may affect your eligibility.

Theres a few things i need to know in order to answer you correctly, which state do you
live in ?, because state guidelines differ.
Is your son disabled?,
In Arizona once you are married they will base eligibility off of your husbands income as well as yours.

And if your income together exceeds the limit
They will stop your sons medicaid.

Each state has somewhat different rules for Medicaid coverage but there can be always exceptions.
As a general rule Medicaid coverage is based on total household income (this is even true if you are not married but living with someone).
If your son has any type of disability then he may still be covered even if the income is above Medicaid max for your state.

California is different than all other states so check your state's Medicaid web site and ask questions.

It is best to contact your state's Medicaid Administrator. Their number is 888) 549-0820

There are many factors at play here and they can tell you your next steps. If your child is no longer eligible for MA, he may be eligible for an SCHIP plan.

This is a link for the state's SCHIP information:

www.doi.sc.gov/.../South-Carolina-Health-Insurance-Pool

If you are having trouble understanding what you are being told or are not getting the answers you need, contact your state senator and have him/her help you through this process.

I found my state senator by putting my town name and the phrase state senator into Google. My guy had an office less than 2 miles from my house and it was on the bus line.

Their services are paid for my tax dollars and they were extremely helpful. They even notarized documents at no cost.

Post back with an update. Blessings and good wishes.
