Can I Switch from Company Insurance to Medicaid?

Question:)  Currently I’m enrolled in company’s insurance but want to switch to Medicaid.  Is it possible?

A Medicaid-eligible individual can always choose to leave the employer’s coverage and enroll in Medicaid, and an employer is not required to pay a penalty for any employees enrolled in Medicaid.

If your income decreased to the Medicaid eligible level, you can stop your company insurance and immediately switch to Medicaid.
