  • 2014, but see if your state has its own low income insurance plan separate from medicaid

  • Nothing's going to happen right now. Most of the changes won't happen until 2014. However, you could check with your state and see what aid is available right now. Where I live, there are many people who have both Medicare and Medicaid, some who don't have Medicare yet, have Medicaid. Your state may actually have a plan for individuals who are under a certain income lever, many states do at least, but you have to ask.

  • It depends on how much you make and how many children you have now. If it is just you and one other child, then if you make less than $15,000 a year, you will qualify for medicaid. If you make more than that, then you will be required to start buying insurance for you and your family. At the end of the year, when you file your taxes, you will get part of that back in credits.

  • Maybe this site can help you find info:
    Or google medicaid and your state to find an office near you. Good luck.

  • Angel is right, but this won't be implemented until 2014. So, not for 4 more years, if is isn't amended by then.
