Hi I’m 17 I am a runaway. I ran away from GA, I moved to TN. I recently found out i was pregnant. My parents also filled a runaway report on me back in September if I come back home I will be arrested. I don’t know what to do. I need to be able to go to the doctors office. I am afraid, I’m also a resident and I want to apply to Medicaid ,but I don’t know how since I don’t have my parents by my side.
You should know that if you apply for Medicaid, then they will discover that you are a runaway. They will have to report it. You need health care for your baby though. I suggest that you consult an attorney who is familiar juvenile law and can help you figure out the best way to resolve the situation. You should also know that anyone who is helping you could be in trouble.
