I have a 17 year old daughter who currently qualifies for Medicaid due to her health (she has a trach and is on a ventilator) but I am being told I need to 'reapply' for Medicaid for her when she turns 18. Has anyone else ever gone through this? Any tips? I was hoping just to 'transition' to adult benefits, not re-apply (and risk being denied). She will also quality for social securtiy when she turns 18 and I am afraid this will make her ineligible for Medicaid, which helps with nursing costs. Please help if you know anything about this.
