  • If I'm correct you're still pregnant with the twins, so you will continue to receive pregnancy medicaid until two months after you have the baby. That allows for a healthy pregnancy and after birth check-up's. At 8 an hour you will not be over the income for that. :)

    After the two months you will be though unfortunately.

  • It usually goes by income, so if you don't go above a certain income level, you may not lose them. Try looking up the income guidelines on your state or county website. Or call your caseworker. For awhile we qualified for medicaid even though dh was working. Our income and household size was within the qualifying range.
