Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you. I'm sorry to hear about your fiance. What exactly is your legal question, please?

It is the question I typed

My apologies, I misread what was typed and didn't see a question. It is possible that he will lose his eligibility, yes.

As you likely know, an individual is eligible for Medicaid only if their income and assets are both very low. If they get married, Medicaid is permitted to consider the "household" income, not just his personal income, and that would include the spouse's income. If your income puts your fiance over the income limit for a couple, it could mean he'd lose his Medicaid coverage.
