Self-Proclaimed ‘Money Maker’ Alexis Skyy’s Medicaid ‘Confession’ Draws Mixed Reactions from ‘LHH’ Viewers

Love and Hip Hop” fans were slightly confused after co-star Alexis Skyy discussed her Medicaid assistance.

Skyy gave birth to her daughter Alaiya Grace in March. The baby was born prematurely by arriving three months early and was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, which is a buildup of fluid in the cavities deep within the brain.

During the latest episode of “LHH,” Skyy explained that her 8-month-old daughter has had multiple surgeries and treatments for her medical condition. While conversing with her grandmother on the show, the 23-year-old mother slipped up and said, “I’ve been working so much and missing appointments for her [Alaiya]. … I gotta get everything switched over for she could get her treatments and stuff because I didn’t know moving up here [to New York] they wasn’t going to accept her Medicaid.”

“LHH” viewers — seemingly missing the fact that Skyy said her child is the one on Medicaid — were scratching their heads as to how Skyy could be on Medicaid when she’s securing the “money” bag and sporting a “$3000 Louis Vutton bag.”

“So who’s gonna tell Alexis that her Medicaid has income requirements 🙄? As a self proclaimed ‘money maker’ she may be ineligible. #LHHNY.”

“I would love to see her at a doctors appointment with her fur coat and Louis Vuitton bag and present her Medicaid card….😂😂😂 Sis dig in that $3000 bag and pay that 40 copay. FOH!!! Report Medicaid Fraud yall, Alexis breaking the law.”

“Currently trying to figure out how I can report Alexis Skyy for Medicaid fraud. Because bitch if I don’t qualify neither do you 😩.”

“So correct me if I’m wrong, but Alexis Skyy on this here tv talking about she has all this money and wearing these expensive looking wigs but also said jersey won’t accept her child’s Medicaid……I’m confusion 🙄 isn’t Medicaid specifically for low income families?”

“How in the hell does Alexis Skyy have this baby on Medicaid🤔 ? When she’s walking around with the latest Chanel bags and furs on! Make it make sense!”

Skyy is in the process of trying to convince her former boyfriend rapper Fetty Wap, who she believes is the father of her child, to take a paternity test.

Medicaid is a state and federal program of health care coverage for low-income people, including eligible adults, children, pregnant women, elderly adults and people with disabilities. As a child born with a special health need, Alaiya Grace likely would qualify for Medicaid assistance because of her disability and regardless of whether the designer props her mother sports on “LHH” make any statement about her actual family income.
