Adult Expansion Medicaid

Adult Expansion Medicaid covers adults with or without dependent children who are below the 133% Federal Poverty Level after the 5% allowable deduction effective January 1, 2020.

The Community Engagement requirement was implemented in January 2020 but was suspended three months later due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In August 2021, the requirement was withdrawn by CMS.  Federal courts ruled that a community engagement (work requirement) is not consistent with the purpose of the Medicaid program, as stated in the Social Security Act.  Because the requirement was suspended before it was fully operationalized, there is no impact on Medicaid members.  Adult Expansion Medicaid members do not need to register for work and do not need to complete the assessment, training programs, or job searches.

How to Qualify:

*Both parents or both non-parent caretaker relatives can be included in the medical coverage.
