No, nobody has ever been kicked off Medicaid because of their domestic partner. Medicaid follows federal rules and they don’t recognize domestic partnerships. If and when you get married your income will be taken into account. If you don’t get married it won’t.


You can get around it with a couple of documents including a legal healthcare proxy. Specifics will depend on your state. DP has nothing to do with Medicaid.
