I went to apply for medicaid and they said I couldn’t get it because they had not extended medicaid in Va for my age group. They said it was supposed to be extended but was not. As I try to apply for an exemption I’m not sure if the code would be C or where it says Determined ineligible for Medicaid in a state that did not expand medicaid. If it is the last one I need a ECN. It says see part one but 1 can’t find a part 1.
To claim the exemption for being ineligible for Medicaid write code "G" in column "C" of the 8965 - health care exemptions form. You don't need to apply for the exemption to the Marketplace with the rejection letter if you live in a state that rejected Medicaid (although you can do this to get a ECN and qualify for special enrollment).
See the instructions below from Healthcare.Gov
