*Medicaid* is the United States health program for families and individuals
with low income and resources. The Health Insurance Association of America
describes Medicaid as a "government insurance program for persons of all
ages whose income and resources are insufficient to pay for health care."
(HIAA, pg. 232). Medicaid is the largest source of funding for medical and
health-related services for people with low income in the United States. It
is a means-tested program that is jointly funded by the state and federal
governments and managed by the states,^[1] with each state currently having
broad leeway to determine who is eligible for its implementation of the
program. Medicaid recipients must be U.S. citizens or legal permanent
residents, and may include low-income adults, their children, and people
with certain disabilities. Poverty alone does not necessarily qualify
someone for Medicaid.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will significantly expand
both eligibility for and federal funding of Medicaid beginning on January
1, 2014. Under the law as written, all U.S. citizens and legal residents
with income up to 133% of the poverty line, including adults without
dependent children, would qualify for coverage. However, the United States
Supreme Court ruled in National Federation of Independent Business v.
Sebelius that states do not have to agree to this expansion in order to
continue to receive existing levels of Medicaid funding, and many states
have chosen to continue with current funding levels and eligibility
