I was curious if there was such a thing as filing or applying for a medical emergency card for a green card holder?
I recently had my wife petition to bring her mother here and she was granted I think they called it an I5 status which is mother of a US citizen daughter. She was given a green card immediately when entering the United States. She also recently got her SSN.
My wife keeps mentioning to me that I need to help my mother in law obtain an emergency medical card. However, I don't know if there is such a thing. She is not a UN refugee I am responsible for her here on he US. So she does not get welfare or a bridge card or any benefits. However, my wife insists she can still apply for an emergency medical card. We are in the state of Michigan and cannot find much information about this.
Is she really eligible to apply for an emergency medical card? If so how or where?
