You would qualify for Medicaid. In Florida, in order to qualify for Medicaid program, you must be a resident of the state of Florida, a U.S. national, citizen, permanent resident, or legal alien, in need of health care/insurance assistance, whose financial situation would be characterized as low income or very low income. You must also be either pregnant, a parent or relative caretaker of a dependent child(ren) under age 19, blind, have a disability or a family member in your household with a disability, or be 65 years of age or older.

In order to qualify, you must have an annual household income (before taxes) that is below the following amounts:

Household Size Maximum Income Level (Per Year)

1 $15,800

2 $21,307

3 $26,813

4 $32,319

You would qualify both under the prong for 1 household member (if you didn't count your dependent) and also for 2 household members (if you did).

If I've fully answered your question, I'd appreciate a five-star rating. If not, please let me know how else I can assist you.
