Q) I’m 21 years old college student with no insurance. My parents insurance dropped me because I was to old. Can I get Medicaid?
A) Yes, you may be eligible for Medicaid if you are a 21-year-old college student with no insurance and your parents insurance dropped you because you were too old. Medicaid is a government health insurance program for low-income people. Eligibility for Medicaid varies from state to state, but in general, you may be eligible if you are under 65 years old, have limited income and resources, and live in a state that has expanded Medicaid.
To apply for Medicaid, you can contact your state’s Medicaid office or you can apply online. You will need to provide information about your income, your assets, and your residency. You may also need to provide proof of your citizenship or legal residency.
If you are approved for Medicaid, you will receive a Medicaid card. You can use your Medicaid card to see doctors, get prescriptions filled, and get other health care services.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind about Medicaid:
- Medicaid is a free or low-cost health insurance program.
- Medicaid covers a wide range of health care services, including doctor’s visits, hospital stays, prescription drugs, and mental health care.
- Medicaid is available to people with limited income and resources.
- Medicaid is a government health insurance program, so you do not have to worry about being denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions.
If you are a 21-year-old college student with no insurance and your parents insurance dropped you because you were too old, you may be eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid can help you get the health care you need, so you should apply if you think you are eligible.
