Will Medi-Cal jeopardize our petition?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am the petitioner and my fiancée and I have already sent the documents and are currently awaiting NOA2. I just applied for Medi-Cal as my mother isn’t covering my health insurance anymore. I’m currently unemployed, but going to start studying very soon. My brother is planning on co-sponsoring us. Will being covered by Medi-Cal jeopardize our case? When applying for Medi-Cal, it said I need to report any changes that could affect my household and/or income, so when I marry my fiancée will reporting this make me lose my coverage through Medi-Cal? Thanks

Hi @mogiftney,

 

I know nothing about healthcare, so can’t answer that - but just wanted to ask how your situation has changed? If I remember correctly from your earlier posts this year, your mother provided your entire financial support and the plan was that she would be supporting both you and your fiancée when she moves?

 

If your mother isn’t supporting you anymore, will you and your partner be able to take care of all the bills for the many months that she’ll be unable to work when she first arrives on the K1? She won’t be able to go on a state-sponsored healthcare plan...

Yes, my situation has changed. My brother has opted to support me instead, as is my grandfather. Yeah we will be able to work out the bills just fine, I’m doing it now so her being here won’t make too big of a difference when it comes to utilities. Yes she won’t be able to go on a state sponsored healthcare plan, but I also have savings money and support from other willing family members to take care of that. I’m on Medi-Cal because I’m currently unemployed, having savings money doesn’t disqualify you for Medi-Cal, it’s only the income they mind. If I can save money on health insurance instead of relying on savings, I’d rather do that for the time being. The money I receive from family isn’t taxable income as it’s legally considered a gift. Thanks for your concern.
