Young man just turned 19 year old, still in high school, Medicaid ending, lives with one of his Teachers, he has $0 income and no relatives. Any suggestions on ACA?

Thanks - Tom
 
State would be nice to know typically.
If $0 income, then why getting booted off Medicaid, just reapply.
Otherwise, full price ACA or STM plan is only option

Sorry - Georgia.

He turned 19 and Georgia is denying him coverage. Not sure why.

have the Teacher claim him as a dependent....use her income and getting kicked off Medicaid as a SEP and sign up for a ACA plan.......
 
GA did not expand medicaid. Prob got kicked off due to age 19. He is stuck with options I listed above. Can't use teachers income unless claiming him on taxes.

thats what I said.....if he lives with her and she is supporting him then he is a dependent.....not sure of the medicaid rules but might also be a option....
 
In Illinois, AllKids ends at age 19, and then transitions into Medicaid (for adults). I ran into a similar scenario recently; grandchild lives with grandma (not a tax dependent) received a letter that AllKids was ending... Turns out AllKids was ending due to aging-out, but Medicaid still continued.
 
If the young man has a denial letter from Medicaid, you can call the marketplace call center and request an exception to enroll in a fully subsidized plan.
