Question regarding Medicaid and income qualifications

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So thankful for this site and the insight I've already received. My fiancé and I are looking to marry here in the states and then she will go back to work (Thailand) and we will begin the visa process. But I am concerned with my financial situation. As an actor my income is not very much and much of it is cash. A family member who makes 6 figures will gladly be my guarantor. So that nips that in the bud. But my main concern is that I have an illness that requires me to have very expensive medicine that I am using Medicaid to pay for. Once we are married will I lose it or will my brother have to pay back the 80 grand this ridiculously over priced medicine is? Please if anyone knows about this it would help us come to a better decision on how to move forward. Many thanks!

EM is correct; the co-sponsor is only responsible for the immigrant; as long as she doesn't rely on means tested benefits, he won;t be tapped.

Normally, medicaid is dependent on income, so even when married, you should still be elligible, unless your wife gets a job which means you, as a family, make enough.
