ACA Coverage Expansions and Low-Income Workers

This brief highlights low-income workers and the impact of ACA coverage expansions on this population. Low-income workers may not have access to jobs that provide full-time, full-year employment or jobs with comprehensive benefit packages, including health insurance. Medicaid plays an important role in providing health coverage for low-income workers, and coverage expansions implemented under the ACA have produced substantial coverage gains for low-income workers and a corresponding reduction in the uninsured. However, low-income workers in non-expansion states with incomes too high for Medicaid but too low for subsidies in the Marketplace do not have an affordable coverage option and will likely remain uninsured.

Connecting the Justice-Involved Population to Medicaid Coverage and Care: Findings from Three States

This brief provides an overview of initiatives to connect the justice-involved population to Medicaid coverage and care in the community in three states—Arizona, Connecticut, and Massachusetts—based on interviews with key stakeholders. These states are leading efforts in these areas and provide key lessons about how to coordinate across health care and corrections and the potential of such initiatives to better link individuals to the physical and behavioral services they need. Each of the case study states is connecting individuals to coverage at multiple points within the justice system. The study states also connect individuals to care in the community as they are released from jail or prison. Stakeholders and data indicate that these approaches have increased coverage, facilitated access to care, and contributed to administrative efficiencies and state savings. However, more data and time are needed to examine the effects on health and criminal justice outcomes, including recidivism rates.

This report provides a second look at how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is impacting people with HIV two years into these new coverage opportunities, based on focus groups conducted with HIV positive individuals from five states in early 2016, after the third round of open enrollment. Groups were conducted with HIV positive individuals who gained insurance coverage – through either the Marketplaces or Medicaid expansion- in California and New York and with those who remained uninsured, largely because they fell into the coverage gap, in Florida, Georgia, and Texas.
