I applied for Medicaid (Ohio, family of 4). My wife has a salary and we own a couple businesses together. The businesses are currently operating at a loss and I have tax documents from 2017 to back this up. Our AGI sits around 21k. I talked to numerous people at the Medicaid offices who assured me the self employment losses will offset the salary income and I will qualify. But when the results came in I was denied. I reapplied with better documentation (once my taxes were done). Same promises and same denial. Healthcare.gov clearly states that they should use the Modified AGI and self employment losses should be included but that's obviously not a legally binding document. Where do I find actual rules on how Medicaid uses self employment losses to determine eligibility? Any advice is appreciated.
