How many people receive Medicaid?

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!
