How long can children remain on Medicaid through their parents?

I m 20 and have been getting medicaid benefits for a few years, because I live in my parent s household and am under 21. I am worried because I turn 21 this year and don t have money for my own healthcare plan until I graduate college in December.

Will my medicaid benefits expire as soon as I turn 21 in September? How long can a person stay on medicaid through their parents?

Other answer:

mysterious:
Medicaid is actually state welfare, not from your parents, but from the working taxpayers in your state. Children automatically age off of it the day they turn 18 or 19, depending on what state they live in.

After that, you have to re-apply for welfare as an adult.

A Hunch:
Medicaid is managed by the state.
Depending on the state the cut off is either 19, 20, or 21 (no state extends past 21).
Additionally, you usually have to be a full time student over age 18.
Flower:
Depends on the state, it can be 19 or 21. Get a job so you can pay for health care. Some colleges offer a health plan. You can move out and be self-sufficient and apply in some states for Medicaid.

Depends on your state's specific Medicaid program. Your parent can find out.

Until the age of 18/
Zarnev:
If you live in a state that expanded Medicaid you can apply for welfare as soon as you are removed from your current welfare coverage.
