Medicaid NYS Question

news

Hi there!

I had a question about Medicaid approval I was hoping somebody can help me with.

I live in New York State. I just received a letter in the mail telling me that I qualify for Medicaid effective January 1st 2021. I’m not entirely sure why I received it; I never applied for it. The reason I qualified as per the letter I received is because my income is between $0 and $17,609.00.

I am self-employed. This year has been a bit nuts as I’m sure everyone is aware, and there was a large gap of time where I wasn’t working (so I was collecting unemployment), however, things have finally picked up and when all is said in done I will definitely be reporting more than $17,609.00 (as long as the UI money counts towards that amount) for 2020.

I’m wondering what my next steps should be given this information. Should I contact them and let them know this? Or should I just shop regularly for health insurance like I usually do, ignoring my approval for medicaid. I won’t know my full income for the year until December 31st or later when I do my taxes, but usually I estimate it when applying for health insurance each year incase I qualify for subsidies.

Thank you for your help!
