Staying on Medicaid After Marriage

I recently got married and we had a child in June. I am on Medicaid and my husband makes $10000 (gross income) yearly. Would my son and I still be eligible for Medicaid?

I am assuming you had your child (doctor and hospital) with Medicaid funds so it seems you should have asked this question some time ago.
If $10,000 is your husband's gross salary then you will probably still qualify for Medicaid but even if that is the case you are legally required to notify Medicaid anytime there are changes in your living status. What was your annual income when you first applied for Medicaid? Perhaps you are also receiving food stamps, if that is the case, then the next question would be, have you notified that office of your present situation? Any other government assistance you may be receiving (housing?) fall under the same laws and it is your legal responsibility (you signed a form stating this law) to notify them of any changing. Most need to be notified within 30 days of any change but it does not matter now - you should notify every agency involved as soon as possible and this has to be done in writing or in person.

As for Medicaid - here is a link that you can follow and find out if you qualify under your present living conditions.

You can call and ask what the income would be for a married couple with a child.

But regardless, the Medicaid says to notify if there are any changes. Now having a child - I think you'd qualify for food assistance and any other help too.

You may not if your husband is part of your household

Yes, based on that being the income for 3 people. You would also want to check into WIC and food stamps as well.

If you start to work, you may also qualify for early Headstart or child care assistance.
