Male in early 50s who last worked in 2015. No work history between 2015 and now, which is about 1.5 years. Thinking about getting Medicaid sometime later this year (2017). Unsure how long Medicaid benefits would last for the above described situation.
Medicaid will continue as long as you continue to meet the income requirements (according to current law.)
With the debates gong on in Washington, I can't predict what might happen to the health care insurance system in the future.
However, as long as the Affordable Care Act stays in place, you can keep Medicaid as long as you meet the income requirement and continue to reapply each year. (Because you linked it to employment, I expect that you do not need to know about Medicaid for long term care.)
