Your question does NOT relate to this thread. But I will try to answer as best I can with limited details because your post lacks a lot of information - so I just have to guess. Yea, a lot has changed in the last decade especially for child coverage. There are many different plans now especially for kids.
The 18 month old coverage - most likely, they aren't really on Medicaid but rather Florida's Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Think they call it - Florida KidCare
National Academy for State Health Policy: Florida CHIP Fact Sheet
from the link ~
For more than two decades, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) has provided health coverage to children in families with low to moderate incomes. Each state has the option to cover its CHIP population within its Medicaid program, design and structure a separate CHIP program, or establish a combination program using both options.
Eligibility for Florida KidCare and under which program and what agency governs it:
HealthyKids.org - What is Florida KidCare
There are (3) different Florida Kidcare programs - each with a level of monthly premiums from ZERO to Full Pay Plans.
2021 Florida KidCare Income Guidelines
Note the footnote:
Florida KidCare eligibility depends on other factors beyond a family’s annual income.
I believe you said previously that your Granddaughter (the mother of the 18 mon old) is disabled. Her disability status could play a part in her child getting Florida KidCare in some other category than Full-Pay - but you will have to ask her if she pays a premium or not -
I have no idea why your granddaughter would be on MEDICAID with an income of $ 65,000 - are you sure she is not on MEDICARE ? If she didn't qualify on her own work record, since her disability (?) happened when she was relatively young, she could be getting MEDICARE under one of her parent's benefit. Edited: You cleared this up in your next post - so strike this
For both, you will have to actually see how their insurance cards are titled as to the source of their benefit and what their premiums might be. ( Medicaid, Medicare, KidCare and which of the three types - my guess from what you said about income is the MediKids /
Florida Healthy Kids)
Like I said, not enough information for me to do anything but guess.
EDITED: my post to you in this thread of 06-02-2021 06:57 PM - answers your question better since I understand it better.
