Jim,


Was the drop in income reported by a third-party (ie employer) or was it self-reported/self-managed ie IRA transactions, Schedule C etc.

Can you be on Medicaid if your MAGI is $50,000? It seems maybe so, if you current monthly income drops.

My unemployment ran out in June, so I reported it at the web site.

I thinks so, in jan 2014 I took a large distribution from ira to get my yearly income high enough to keep me out of medicaid. It didn't work they put me in medicaid anyway. Maybe if you took a monthly distribution it would work.

Monthly distributions will work to keep you out of Medicaid.

Question for all you ACA folks..........once you are enrolled in an ACA plan, is there such a thing as open enrollment annually where you can change plans w/o medical underwriting?

Yes, yearly open enrollment, beginning Nov 1, no underwriting, guaranteed issue. Continuous coverage rules still apply.
