New law coming into effect will qualify me for Medicaid. Is that true?

Q) I’m a 41 year old full time college student living off my Pell grant. I have to have a biopsy done to see if I may or may not have lymphoma. I have applied to Obama Care and cannot afford the premiums or the deductible. When I go into my local Medicaid office they said because I do not have minor children in the home I would not qualify for Medicaid. When I called blue cross blue shield of Texas, they said with the new law coming into effect, that I should qualify for Medicaid now. Is that true?

A) With the new health care law significant changes to Medicaid and CHIP will take effect on January 1, 2014. You may well qualify after January 1, 2014. In the mean time I recommend you inquire on the new requirements for your state that will take effect at that time and apply for medicaid. If you cannot wait due to your condition please seek out free community medical clinics in your area.
