Effective January 1, 2014, Medicaid is expanded in certain states to include individuals between the ages of 19 up to 65 (parents, and adults without dependent children) with incomes up to 133% federal poverty level (FPL). It is important to note that per CMS guidance, there is no deadline for states to implement Medicaid expansion.

An estimated 185,000 - 380,000 uninsured AI/AN who report access to Indian health programs providers would be eligible for Medicaid under the expansion.

These Medicaid enrollees are in addition to the approximately 437,000 IHS users that are covered by Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) to day.

The Medicaid expansion under the ACA is projected to generate new funding to serve AI/AN. A portion of the new Medicaid revenues flows to Indian health programs and a portion offsets Contract Health Service.
