Can men with custody of their children get Medicaid?
April 12, 2014
Q) I know there are single mothers who get medicaid and their children are on medicaid also. Can men who are single fathers with custody of their children and he is not working get medicaid in Texas also?
Thank you. Marilyn W*****
A) Each state administrates their medicaid program differently. You will need to go to your Texas state medicaid website and read their rules and requirements for coverage.
Keep in mind that “In all states, Medicaid provides health coverage for some low-income people, families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. In some states the program covers all low-income adults below a certain income level.” https://www.healthcare.gov/do-i-qualify-for-medicaid/#howmed
