I currently live in NY with my wife and 5 year old son. Medicaid recently sent a letter stating that they need proof of income. My wife currently makes around $1600/mo and we live with our parents whom we pay $400/mo rent too along with other expenses... I am currently unemployed.
I'm confused since i see different charts/requirements/income thresholds online and I also called in. Online I saw to be eligible income should be around 20k a year for 3 member family... however when I called n a rep told me $1173 BEFORE taxes, etc (not sure if I hear them right)?
I can provide bank statements showing the deposits etc... They want us to go into the office to do so but I wanted some advice first.. Would they accept this amount and would we still be eligible? I really don't like the thought of not having coverage, especially for my son.
I would truly be grateful to anyone that can help us and guide us in the right direction. I don't want to make sure situation worst. They just don't make this easy to understand I guess.
