Q) I am 62 yrs old and recently moved to Denton, Tx.. I will soon lose my health care benefits as of the first of the year through my ex -husband’s retirement plan. I have moved into an apartment and am looking for a job. My question is: would I be eligible for medicad, as I can only work part-time due to physical and mental problems. I suffer from severe depression and anxiety, making it hard to hold down a job. I do not qualify for social security disability, as I have not paid enough in. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you
