I am looking for affordable medical insurance for my mother, but I can’t find any good options. Should I be looking for alternatives?
You can save the most money by not buying anything. The same is the case when you are aiming for affordable medical insurance. Sometimes, you might not even need to get your health insurance. You may be eligible for Medicaid, depending on your income and the state in which you reside. You can call or visit your local Medicaid office or Healthcare.gov to determine if you qualify for Medicaid. There are a few options to look into if you’re a parent. First, the number of children covered by the Children’s Health Insurance Program has grown in several states (CHIP). Go to the Medicaid CHIP website and answer the questions under “Can I Get It?” to determine if your kids are eligible for CHIP. Second, see if the kids can get covered by their other parents. If your ex-spouse receives health insurance through their job, your kids may still be covered even after the divorce is finalized.
