My husband hasn't been working in past years and we've had some difficulties, including him being diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma a few months ago. He was offered Medicaid this year and is on that in the state of Colorado.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Last year I got a one off pension payment from overseas and that pushed my income up - but I used the money to reinvest in another property and pay debts + a huge portion in tax.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
the question is - do they base his medical insurance off my income - the household?
And are they going to say because I got a pension payment that I've earned too much?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It says you've replied but I don't see any replies here

Here you are required to report the payment, understand they share information with IRS so they will know about it eventually.It might affect eligibility for a month here if it goes over the income and resource limits.

Well the other issue is we don't live together and I just haven't updated the state about it since he has been unwell
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Separated but I am still helping him because we have a daughter and we love one another but can't live together. So given he doesn't have a job, do I just report it to the state and then they'll just consider his situation and not mine? I already pay private health insurance for myself and daughter.

Well you should do so and list him as separated.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Ok, I just didn't want him to have too much hassle since he's got a terminal illness.

Yes he would be separated here.

ok
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
thank you
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
oh - we aren't divorced - someone had mentioned we have to be, but I'm not interested in doing this to him right now.

Prayers to you.I wish you both the best.Thanks for rating 5 stars and have a blessed evening.

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Do I need to?

No court probably wouldn't grant given his condition at this point.You might get social security survivor benefits if he deceases as would your child if under 18.
