Are you wondering if you qualify for Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) expansion? You’re not alone. Many people are confused about their eligibility for this program, and it’s easy to see why. The rules can be complex, and they vary from state to state.
First, let’s take a step back and define what Medicaid is. Medicaid is a health insurance program for people with low income and limited resources. It is jointly funded by the federal government and the states, and each state administers its own program.
Under the ACA, states were given the option to expand Medicaid eligibility to people with income up to 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL). As of 2021, 38 states and Washington D.C. have expanded Medicaid under the ACA. If you live in one of these states, you may be eligible for Medicaid if your income is below this threshold.
So, how do you know if you qualify for Medicaid under the ACA expansion? The best way to find out is to visit your state’s Medicaid website or everyhealthgroup.com You can also contact a healthcare navigator or an enrollment assister in your area who can help you understand your options.
It’s important to note that even if you don’t qualify for Medicaid under the ACA expansion, you may still be eligible for other types of Medicaid coverage. For example, children, pregnant women, and people with disabilities may qualify for Medicaid regardless of income.
