← I would like to know what I need to know about getting Medicaid. And also what kind of paper work I would need.
Q) I am 2 months pregnant. I got here in the US through K1 visa and Married to the father of my child. Paper works are already processed and we are waiting for it. Right now I don’t have work and we don’t know if we are Eligible for medicaid. It will be a big help for us since my husband doesn’t get so much.
A) Without a Lawful Permanent Resident status you will not be qualify for Medicaid. Also as a Lawful Permanent Resident, you are generally required to wait up to 5 years before you qualify for Medicaid or most government assistance.
