I will eligible to apply for citizenship next year. Yet in the last three months, I lost both my jobs. I haven’t applied for any welfare, as at the moment I can manage everything, and have the option of employment overseas.

Yet I am thinking about getting Medicaid, as health insurance is one thing I would like to have.

Does that have any ramifications for the citizenship process?

No,i have 2 young kids ages 4 and 3. We qualified for family medicaid since my second child was born. so we have medicaid for 3 years now. I applied for citizenship April 2014 and Got Naturalized August 15,2014. My interview was like 2 minutes and i got approved. however i had been a legal permanent resident since 2008 and been living in the US since 2006. No records and never travel out of country so maybe thats why my whole application was quick and the interview is very very quick. but as far as being on welfare i didnt have problems during the whole process. Never been asked during the interview too.

I'm not quite sure, but I believe a MediCaid is a federal means-tested benefit and your sponsor (the person who signed your affidavit - probably your significant other) will require to reimburse the full amount. [unless you're a US citizen or have worked more than 10 years in US.]
