Medicaid: A Primer – Key Information on the Nation’s Health Coverage Program for Low-Income People

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expands Medicaid significantly beginning in 2014 and the expanded program is to serve as the foundation of the broader framework created by the ACA to cover millions of previously uninsured low-income adults and children. This primer, from Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured, examines how the Medicaid program is structured, who it covers, what services it provides, how it is financed and how much it costs. It also provides an overview of how Medicaid will change under the health reform law.
