The Meaning of Medicaid A State-by-State Breakdown

Fact Sheet

Medicaid and its sister program, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), buffer millions of Latinos and other vulnerable Americans from uninsurance. Private health coverage, obtained through the workplace or purchased directly from an insurance company, is often unattainable for millions of low-income working Latino families. A recent study confirms that Medicaid enrollees were more likely than low-income uninsured individuals to access health care, incur less medical debt, and report better physical and mental health.
