Medicaid is a healthcare program that assists low-income families or individuals in paying for long-term medical and custodial care costs.

Medicaid is a joint program, funded primarily by the federal government and run at the state level, where coverage may vary.

Medicaid is a government-sponsored insurance program for individuals of any age whose resources and income are insufficient to cover healthcare.

The newest possible changes were introduced in Jan. 2018 when the Trump administration authorized states to apply to impose requirements that Medicaid recipients work or participate in job-training or other programs in order to receive aid.

While the law has worked to expand both federal funding and eligibility for Medicaid, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that states are not required to participate in the expansion in order to continue receiving already established levels of Medicaid funding.
