can you still be eligible for medicaid if you own a home?

I know this seems like a stupid question, but I'm not sure which is why I'm asking lol. I'm not applying anytime soon, but if SO and I buy a home in the near future and we TTC, I'd like to apply for medicaid since we can't afford insurance....

  • I think so I think that's the one my dad is on and he owns a home. It might depend on your income too though.

  • I do believe so.. But why would you TTC if you can't afford health insurance, but can afford a house?.. Just my opinion..

  • I think it is different from state to state. I know here in PA if you own more than one home (rental properties or something included) you don't qualify - even if those extra properties are their only source of income... I know someone who is dealing with that now... But those laws tend to be different depending on where you live...

  • This question is going to cause problems.

  • My kids are on medicaid and I own my own house, I'm not pregnant so I have no idea if I'd qualify, but I'm pretty sure I still would since it's based on income level.

  • not trying to cause debate lol I'm just curious. I just dont remember if the application has a living status (rent, own...etc) on it.

  • I know several people that own homes and have children on Medicaid here, in WV.

  • I never understood TTC when you can't afford something as important as health insurance. I mean accidents happens, but actually trying? I'm not trying to be mean. But good luck!

  • Yes. It is based on income
