Hi, my brother who is a US citizen, filed an I-130 for our parents. They filed for permanent residency at the same time and my brother sign the form I-864. It's been almost a year and our parents started working and already filed their income taxes. Our father who is 65 was told he could apply for medicaid in Florida where they live. When filling out the application they ask if they have a sponsor. We know that according to immigration the obligations with the I-864 will end for my brother until our parents become citizens or have worked or earned 40 quarters of Social Security. My question is Do they have to say that they do have a sponsor? even if they are already working? If they say yes, would medicaid take into consideration what my brothers earns? I appreciate an answer to this.
