By law, Medicaid is limited to low-income people.
Medicaid is to help those people who are not offered health insurance thru their employer or cannot afford it.
medicaid is an example of an entitlement program because it helps low-income people.
The number of people that receive Medicaid varies widely. One of the biggest indicator of how many people receive Medicaid is the economy - is the unemployment rate high? If so, there will be an increase in the number of people receiving Medicaid. This is a program designed to help low-income families that do not otherwise have access to healthcare. A person usually needs to have some other "indicator" as well. You cannot simply have Medicaid just because you are "low-income." You have to have minor children in your home, be pregnant, or have a disability (and found to be disabled through SSA, which takes a long, long time!) Anyway, people need to really educate themselves on this program before they come to any conclusions. Thanks!
