How will ObamaCare affect me if I'm already on Medicaid?

My three children and I are on Medicaid, will we need to switch to ObamaCare?

    Carol is correct. In fact, if you attempt to apply for coverage under "Obamacare" and it is determined that you instead qualify for Medicaid, or you affirm that you have Medicaid in the interview process, you will be directed back to the agency that administers Medicaid in your state.

      You can expect less doctors to be willing to take your coverage, as the Govt gives less and they get tired of not being reimbursed.

      Here the bad news for you.  Even in some of the better-run Medicaid systems, the predicted outcomes for patients are neutral to negative compared to no insurance.  Worse, the missing money isn’t being spent on you but is being spent elsewhere:

      The Congressional Budget Office estimates that Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid will cost about $6,000 per patient per year. Medicaid only increased patient spending by $1,172. Where did the rest of the money go?

      Under the bill, Medicaid would have been available to families making about $30,000 a year (or about $14,500 for a single – this is 133% of the federal poverty level)

        People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

        1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
        2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
        3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
        4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
        5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
