Q) I applied for Medicaid a few months ago and my kids were referred to CHIPS and in the mean time I have lost my job and reported the change will they be referred back to medicaid or do I need to re-apply
A) Yes, your kids may be referred back to Medicaid if you lost your job. Medicaid is a government health insurance program for low-income individuals and families. It is a joint federal and state program, and eligibility and benefits vary from state to state. Medicaid covers a wide range of medical services, including doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, and mental health care.
To be eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain income and asset requirements. You may also be eligible if you are pregnant, have a disability, or are a member of a certain group, such as a Native American or Alaskan Native.
If you think you may be eligible for Medicaid, you can apply online or by contacting your state’s Medicaid office.
Here are some of the benefits of Medicaid:
- Free or low-cost health care
- Access to a wide range of medical services
- Peace of mind knowing that you have health insurance
If you are low-income, you may be eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid can help you get the health care you need, when you need it.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Medicaid eligibility is based on your household income and assets.
- You may have to pay a copayment or coinsurance for some medical services.
- You may need to get a referral from your doctor before you can see a specialist.
If you are unsure whether or not you are eligible for Medicaid, you should contact your state’s Medicaid office.
