  • Short answer. Yes to both. Not sure if you will qualify. Depends on income in any case. It has nothing to do w/ marital status.

  • Yes, they both go by your combined income and medicaid also goes by certain bills.

  • Yes to both. It will be based on everyone's income in the household.

    Answer by itsallabtthem84 at 5:41 PM on Sep. 23, 2010

  • Yes, to both. Its about income, not marital status. If your household brings in under so much (it depends on the size of the household), you're eligible for services.

  • Yes, depending on your income, it has nothing to do with your marital status

    Answer by Liz132 at 5:42 PM on Sep. 23, 2010

  • You still have to meet the income requirements with both incomes, but yes you can still recieve the benefits if you qualify.
