Why is this important?

Medicaid is a state and federal partnership that provides health coverage for eligible individuals and families with low incomes and resources. The purpose of the program is to improve the health of people who might otherwise go without medical care. Medicaid is a marker for poverty, and demand for Medicaid increases when the economy is weak, driving up enrollment and costs. Increased demand for public programs, caused by rising unemployment, can place additional stress on state revenues, and may lead to budget shortfalls.
