5 Year Ban on Medicaid For Newly Legal Residents
I wanted to know which are the rules for legal/permanent residents when applying for Medicaid.
Do they have the 5 year ban or not?
Will the individual need to be in the US for 5 years before they can apply for Medicaid?
As we understand it there is still a five year ban on Medicaid for newly legal residents. You may still have Marketplace options based on income if you have been a lawfully residing immigrant within the US for 5 years or less. State's have the option to cover children and pregnant women.
