Medicaid is partially-funded by the federal government, but eligibility standards are determined by the individual states. $29,000 might be too much in one state and qualifying in another. He needs to check with his state's Medicaid office, one of which is generally found in every county's seat.

Depends if he is single or married. Depends on what state you live in.

No. He should be looking for another job full time which includes benefits,e g.. health insurance coverage. At $29K he will be fined if he doesn't acquire health insurance. He can go to healthcare.gov and begin the process.

Maybe. It depends on the state where he lives, whether he is disabled, his marital status, etc.

Medicaid qualifications vary by state.
In Minnesota, a state that expanded Medicaid under the ACA, a single individual has to make under $16,753 to qualify and Minnesota is one of the more generous states..
So, I doubt that he would qualify.

If he is single, his income may be too high for Medicaid. I am in California and as a single, no children, the income limit is $1250 a month. Some counties allow you to offset income with vision or dental insurance, and some counties will give you Medicaid with a share of cost. He has to check with his county Medicaid and ask what the income maximum is in that county. There is also a limit on assets. For one person the total is $2000.
