I worked for Kmart 30 years and they closed our store in December, so I am unemployed. I do not qualify for ObamaCare, and Alabama does not offer me Medicaid. Please tell me what I can do. I can not afford the insurance without help.
My husband is on disability and his income does not count on our taxes.
If you have low income, and live in Alabama, you may be in trouble. Alabama has rejected Medicaid expansion and decided to leave about 235,000 without coverage.
If you meet certain qualifications, including having little to no income, you may qualify for Alabama's existing Medicaid program. You can get the eligibility guidelines for Alabama Medicaid here.
For anyone who has been denied Medicaid, or would be denied if they applied for Medicaid, everything you need to know can be found right here. Being denied Medicaid opens the door to many coverage options and exemptions from the fee.
