Thread: Can you work and still keep health coverage?

    Can you work and still keep health coverage?

    Hello,
    I'm thinking about starting a business. I'm wondering if I do well with the business will I lose the health coverage? (The definition of do well varies person to person) I'm not concerned about the Social Security check. More the healthcare coverage.. For all things health-related. Medications, doctor visits etc.
    I'm in the state of Minnesota..

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Are you referring to Medicaid? Medicare?

    Eligibility for Medicaid is dependent upon income and assets being below a certain level.

    If you are on Medicare because you are also on SSDI or SSI, and you return to work, you do risk loosing both your SSDI/SSI and your Medicare unless you initially do Ticket to Work or some similar program, which can last up to 24 months (as I remember) during which your SSDI/SSI and Medicare are protected.

    If you are working for yourself, and thus do not have a company-provided health insurance plan, you can then purchase ACA (Obamacare) insurance.

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.
