Medicaid and Marriage?

I have a question. We live in North Carolina and plan on getting married this year. My fiancé and I have one child together and I have 2 of my own. Right now my daughters have Medicaid. My question is when we get married will they lose their Medicaid even though my fiancé isn't their biological father? The reason I am asking is because my daughter has type one diabetes and needs good insurance. Thank you!

When your fiance becomes part of your household, his income may bump you up to a level where your daughters may not be eligible for Medicaid anymore.

You will become a family of 5 when you are married. You'll have to see with your social worker what will happen.


This will all depend on your combined income and living expenses after you're married.

Don't rely on us. Go see the experts at the Social Security office. Get it in writing, too. Hope all works out.

It appears from your questions and comments that you are already a family of 5 (living together) but you are only reporting a family of 3 to Medicaid right now but plan to change that to a family of 5 after you get married.

  • Only Social Security can answer your question correctly as there are too many factors that we do not know (and do not need to know) that will help SS make a decision on your children's Medicaid and any other government entitlements you may be receiving.

  • It seems your family of three is not eligible for Medicaid but when you add your 2 girls to the mix that will make a big difference and may change everything - maybe in your favor.
  • It does not matter who the biological father is as the girls are living with you and your fiance now and the plan is to be a family of 5.
  • If the biological father was/is paying support (as he should be) then it is possible that income would also be considered.
  • As stated before, only the SS office can answer your questions correctly.

Remember, Social Security is a government agency and it is always in your best interest to be honest and above board when reporting (or not reporting?) any type of information.
