Notify Medicaid If You Obtain Or Become Eligible For Health Insurance While Receiving Medicaid

During the application process, the eligibility worker is supposed to tell you that if you become eligible for health insurance later, either through coverage as a spouse or domestic partner or through work, you are required to report it. You are generally also prohibited from refusing the coverage.

In most states, if Medicaid finds you declined other health insurance while on Medicaid, you can be suspended from receiving Medicaid. This conforms to Medicaid's goal of being the insurer of last resort.
