Q) I just got an increase in the amount of food stamps I receive. Now will Medicaid stop paying for my medicare premium? I am in North Carolina
A) This increase in the amount of food stamp benefits should not affect your current Medicaid benefits – According to medicaid website; The Affordable Care Act of 2010, signed by President Obama on March 23, 2010, creates a national Medicaid minimum eligibility level of 133% of the federal poverty level ($29,700 for a family of four in 2011) for nearly all Americans under age 65. This Medicaid eligibility expansion goes into effect on January 1, 2014 but states can choose to expand coverage with Federal support anytime before this date-see related Federal Policy Guidance and states that have expanded Medicaid prior to 2014.
