This question is about Medicaid in the state of Missouri, but I am sure all states are similar. Please, I just want answers, not criticism. For a family of 4. 2 parents and 2 kids, is one parent working that makes $15 an hour for a 40 hour week too much money for the kids to recieve health care? I ask b/c with the job my SO has, he makes decent money, but does not have health ins. available. And it is too expensive to pay privately. When the kids were born, I had ins. thru my job, but have lost my job ad ins. since then. Now the kids are not covered.Answer Question

Well in Florida we have healthy kids which is kinda like medicaid but its for parents who make too much to qualify. I pay $15 per child ( 3 kids $45) per month. I have ins at my job too but its like 900 for all of us. They just asked for proof and I sent them the enrollment packet for my works insurance and my income, $15 per hour 40 hrs per week plus $250 per month child support for my son. I hope that have a program for you there like this. Good luck hon and hold you head up. Some people don't understand . I do. Ive been there. My dh is in the guard but my kids are not his so they cant be on his plan. You do what you have to do.

No problem. Here we have a mock application site where you put in your basic info family size income etc and it will tell you if you would qualify, then if it says you are eligible you can apply, Good Luck.
