    You will never know if you qualify for Medicaid if you don't apply for coverage. Your eligibility will depend on a variety of factors, most importantly whether your state expanded Medicaid and how much you earn each year. Different states have different qualifications, but you will never know if you qualify if you don't begin the application process, which is as easy as going to Healthcare.gov and filling out an application.

    While there are specific dates you can sign up for Obamacare, there is no such restraint on when you can apply for Medicaid. That means that you can apply for Medicaid 365 days a year. So if you are on the fence and don't know if you qualify then there's no need to wait!

    It is really easy to apply. I just went to Healthcare.gov and clicked on the link they provided. Then you're directed to type in your zip code and off you go. I would encourage anyone who is wondering if they are eligible or not to just fill out an application and see. What do you have to lose?

    Good point. Very straight forward. Doesn't take long at all either.

    Exactly. I'm hoping that people don't think it's hard to apply. You may not qualify for it, but it doesn't hurt to apply and see if you are. Who knows? Maybe you won't qualify for Medicaid, but are eligible for a subsidy.
