In a state like North Carolina where a decision has been made not to participate in ACA - does that mean low income or unemployed individuals will continue to not have medical coverage? My mom doesn't work - I support her financially. We live in MN so she is able to get coverage through the state's generous Medical Assistance program. We are looking to move to NC and the fact that she will not be able to get medical coverage in NC pretty much stopped us from relocating. While I could financially support her...private medical insurance is too expense for me to buy for her. She is not old enough to get Medicare and she is not disabled or anything to qualify for Medical Assistance in most states. I believe MN is one of the very few states that currently provides medical coverage for people below certain income level.
Does anyone know how things will work in 2014 for a state like North Carolina? Also, how about a state like CA where the current Medicaid program does not offer medical coverage for low income adults without children under 18 - will these individuals be covered in 2014 through the Medicaid expansion of ACA?
