You nailed in delph.
And at 33% self employment tax would knock you down to $1340 a month take home pay.
You are only allowed to have like $1500 in your savings account to be on Medicaid.
We need more information here from Iwrite4Food as it is apparent that he can not even afford a plane ticket to Poland to start with.
Lets be honest here.
I'm on Medicaid right now...completely free healthcare here in the U.S.
>>>but I'm getting older and want access to better and cheaper healthcare than I can afford in the U.S.)
So what is your handi cap that qualifies you for Medicaid being you are middle aged and collecting Medicaid ?
You say your Medicaid covers 100% of your health care now but want access to cheaper healthcare than you can afford in the U.S. ?????
What is cheaper than free ?
By any chance is Trump booting you off Medicaid or have you milked it for as long as you can and no longer qualify ?
As my screen name suggests, I am a freelance writer.
If Iwrite4Food is on Medicaid it would qualify him for Food Stamps (free food) too ????
Say you are a free lance writer is like me saying that I am a free lance consultant.
Very very vague that confirms/means absolutely nothing.
You say that, "What I make here will afford me a very nice lifestyle in Krakow but enough to have a nice flat and save $$$ at the end of the month for marriage and retirement."
If that was true you would not be able to qualify for Medicaid.
In my humble opinion you are dreaming a pipedream that is beyond your financial capabilities and current assets.
Like Joker said, "If you cant make a decent living in the USA don't expect it to happen in Poland."
