If I have medicaid and my baby's father is on birth certificate, will the state go after him for the medical fees?
I am currently pregnant and have a child on the way and have medicaid but, if I put the child's father's name on the birth certificate will the government go after him for all the fees even though we're not married but a couple together?
It doesn't matter that you and your baby's father are not married. If he is listed as the baby's father, the state will consider him as having the legal obligation to take care of the baby. So, if the state pays for expenses for the baby, it can later go after the father for reimbursement for all the expenses paid on behalf on your baby.
