I signed up for Obama care and was told I might be eligible for Medicaid so on dec 15th 2014. I put in my Medicaid app. just got a letter yesterday 2-17-2015 that I was approved for EMERGECY ONLY Medicaid. So my question is, do I need to sign up at market place to get my blue cross blue shield back ? I don’t have the money to pay for all this stuff myself Dr. office . meds I am laid off and only get $133 a week.
If you got enrolled in emergency only Medicaid you aren't exempt from the fee based on coverage, luckily your acceptance letter should double as a denial.
Please note, you can keep your Medicaid limited benefit coverage. You don't have to switch off it unless you fail to qualify for it.
Important: If you have limited Medicaid coverage, when you fill out a Marketplace application and are asked whether you have coverage now, don’t check the box saying you have Medicaid. Check “None of the above” instead.
