This brief reviews Medicaid’s current eligibility structure and the health needs of the people covered by Medicaid. Due to the trends of limited and declining access to private health coverage in the low-income population and the growing health and long-term care demands of an aging population, a broader model for Medicaid eligibility is considered and the implications of recent legislative and policy developments for coverage are assessed.
