Medicaid and Women: Looking to the Future
In recent years, there have been significant changes to Medicaid that have the potential to reshape program coverage for the nearly 19 million women who rely on the program. This policy forum focused on recent federal and state policies, including the federal Deficit Reduction Act and state waiver programs, and their impact on low-income women, who make up approximately 70% of Medicaid’s adult beneficiaries.
