Can I (the US citizen) apply for Medicaid while fiance has AOS?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance has health insurance he bought in his home country and I have just moved back to the US now with him for our marriage. 

 

We're now ready to file the AOS but I have not yet found a job and am worried about being uninsured. I would like to apply for Medicaid. 

 

If we have a co-sponsor will it be OK? I know he cannot file for state benefits but I don't know whether I am or if it will hurt the immigration process. It is just a short term thing since I do plan on going through my job after I find one. It is just risky to be uninsured. 

 

Thanks all

From what I understand, you may use medicaid for yourself. Its not like cash assistance or housing assistance, from which your husband could derive a benefit. Medicaid applies just to you. Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

 

IMO, I don't see the risk in being uninsured if you qualify for medicaid.  You can apply for it when/if you need it, instead of applying now, unless you are talking about wanting to get preventative care, etc. If you find yourself in an emergency, you can apply for emergency medicaid. You may find a job that offers you insurance before you would actually even need use medicaid.
