My husband is required to carry health insurance as a student. Does anyone know if family medicaid covers the entire family including the dad?

I don't think in NM it does - but maybe with a really low income. Can he get it through his college? Other than that, I'd keep an eye on when the SCI lists open up again, as you can make quite a bit and still qualify (low premiums/copays).

I think only adult medicaid coverage is for pregnant women, or disabled men and women - but I could be wrong.

In Indiana, my husband is listed on our food stamps and the girls Medicaid as an 'ineligible college student'

This depends on your state. If you income is low enough, then he may qualify. Usually, they will cover the children, but not always the adults.
