Does working impact my Medicaid and other available food and housing benefits?

Remember that Medicaid is a Federal-State health insurance program. Although it is possible to keep Medicaid, your eligibility might be affected by your earnings. If you receive Medicaid, check with your state Medicaid office for specific information.

Your local Social Security office or state Medicaid office can also inform you about the impact of income on your food (SNAP) and Housing (Section 8) benefits.
