Can I apply for Medicaid for me and my family if I work full-time?


Medicaid eligibility depends on income and family size, not hours worked. Further, you can apply regardless of your income, you’ll just be rejected or pointed at the marketplace if you make too much to qualify.

How much you would pay for Medical/Marketplace coverage depends on income and family size, and the exact criteria for CHIP (if you have children) and Medicaid eligibility also depends on what state you are in (due to some states rejecting Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act).

You can apply for Medicaid by contacting your state Medicaid office or by signing up at the Marketplace ( to see your assistance options.
