Question about Medicaid?

I have 2 insurances. I have blue cross as my primary through my mom which I can have until i'm like 25. (I'm 21 right now)
And I have Illinois Medicaid for my daughter which also means that's my secondary.

My boyfriend and I want to get married. He doesn't have insurance and I was wondering, when

I have 2 insurances. I have blue cross as my primary through my mom which I can have until i'm like 25. (I'm 21 right now)
And I have Illinois Medicaid for my daughter which also means that's my secondary.

My boyfriend and I want to get married. He doesn't have insurance and I was wondering, when we get married, would he be able to be added to my Medicaid? I know he can't get my blue cross because that's under my mom, not me. But the Medicaid is under my name.

Best Answer:

Cheyenne: Not exactly, but that's not the worst of it. You and your daughter might not be able to stay on it either. To be on medicaid, a person has to live in a household where the total income of everyone in the household, including those on medicaid and those not on it, is low enough. If you live with or marry your boyfriend and his income is too high, then the entire household, including you and your daughter, lose medicaid.

On the other hand, if the total income of him, you, your daughter, and anyone else who will be living in the household is low enough, then he may be able to get medicaid through your daughter, the same as you did.

Other answer:

Cheyenne:
Medicaid is welfare, even YOU may not be able to keep it after you are married since they consider household income for qualifying. Your spouse can not be added.
Bob:
No he can not be added to your daughters Medicaid
Bill S:
Medicaid is based on your income so it depends on whether or not he has income. If he has no income, don't marry him until he does.
