Medicaid Expansion and Coverage

Curated by Kathryn S. Beard, J.D.

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), states have the option to expand Medicaid coverage to a group of beneficiaries who were previously ineligible. Newly eligible individuals are those with household incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL), who are: under the age of 65, not pregnant, not entitled to or enrolled in either Medicare Part A or B, and not eligible for Medicaid under any other category.

The future of Medicaid expansion is uncertain under the Trump Administration considering the President's campaign promise to repeal and replace the ACA. Stay tuned for updates from Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory.
