When Aunt and Uncle (who are on medicare) are raising their nephews which were placed in their care by the court in Texas, will the children automatically qualify for Medicaid. Or does the income of the Aunt and Uncle determine if the children qualify for Medicaid.


If these children are your legal dependents, you should list them as such on your marketplace application. If you were already covered by Medicaid, this should extend to your children. They also might be covered by CHIP. The best way to get this sorted out is to update your marketplace application to reflect this new change in your family.
