OVERVIEW

In 2014, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) will give states the option to expand Medicaid to most people with incomes up to 133 percent of the federal poverty guidelines ($15,282 for an individual and $31,322 for a family of four in 2013). This will for the first time, allow any state to choose to extend eligibility to childless adults, beginning in 2014 or in a future year. The federal law will provide federal financing (FMAP) for all newly eligible individuals according to the following schedule: 100 percent FMAP for 2014 to 2016; 95 percent FMAP for 2017; 94 percent FMAP for 2018; and 90 percent FMAP for 2020 and beyond.
