hide captionThe implementation of the Affordable Care Act draws even more questions than when the law was on the drawing board.
The new year is upon us, and with it a fuller implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The questions about the health care law haven’t slowed. Here are some of the latest queries and answers.
I live in Georgia. Our modified adjusted gross income is about $4,900 because our Social Security payments (about $27,000 a year) aren’t counted as income. When I phoned for information, I was told that we qualified for Medicaid. Our income is rental income. From what I could tell online, the assets themselves — houses — aren’t counted. However, I thought Medicaid does count assets, and then we wouldn’t qualify. I can’t get a concrete answer from anyone. Would we qualify for Medicaid or not?
