My aunt is 72 years old and she received her green card (resident alien) 3 years ago. She has no income or support. The Florida Dep of Children and Families, who is running Medicaid, decliend her application on the grounds that she needs to be a resident for 5 years before she is eligible for benefits. That sounds very odd to me. Particularly since she is in serious need for medical/hospital attention. Can anyone offer advice on how she can get covered right away?
