I had to quit my job and move in with my parents to be a full-time caregiver. My 86 year-old mom is in renal failure and has advanced dementia and my 89 year-old dad couldn't take care of her alone. We agreed to keep her at home as long as possible.
So I have no income and no health insurance. I live in Illinois and could buy health insurance on the Marketplace for full-price at $470 per month. Which I can't afford with no income. I got an application for Medicaid, but since I'm living with my parents, they want information on my parents' assets which I'm not comfortable providing. I don't need SNAP or any cash assistance, I just need some basic health insurance so I can go to the doctor if needed. Does anyone know specifically about Illinois health insurance - if I would be eligible for Medicaid since I have no income? I do have some savings, but do I have to be completely broke before I can get Medicaid? I don't want to deplete all my savings. Thanks for any info.
