I was just released from prison… Wanted to see if I could qualify for food stamps and health insurance?

Q) I was just released from prison after doing ten years. Having a hard time want to work but don’t have birth certificate social security card or state I’d. Waiting on birth certificate to come in mail. Wanted to see if I could qualify for food stamps and health insurance? Could you please help me?




A) You do qualify for food stamps and Medicaid after being released from prison. Whether you are convicted or not and are incarcerated or released from incarceration, you can always sign up for your state’s Medicaid plan. You just can’t receive medicaid medical care, if you have been convicted and in confinement except for medicaid medical treatment needed outside of confinement.
