No, but make it a follow up situation to see if the person(s) covered are eligible to get their own insurance and cancel their Medicaid if so. Just like the healthcare marketplace plans.

if you are physically able to have a job and you dont then you shouldn't get Medicaid provided by the gov. this includes people who are fat but do not have a condition. if you are elderly or have a legitimate condition i agree that the gov should subsidize.
