Medicaid Program Incentivized This Couple To Marry!

Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get crazier, here is this news flash last night from The Blaze via The Seattle Times.

A Washington couple got married recently so they could avoid Medicaid expenses being billed to their estate.

By marrying, Sofia Prins and Gary Balhorn, both 62, now earn a combined income that’s too high to qualify for Medicaid, but low enough to qualify for Obamacare tax credits, the Seattle Times reported.

The Affordable Care Act states that if an individual qualifies for Medicaid, they can’t qualify for tax credits to enroll in Obamacare.
