Value of Medicaid
Medicaid helps millions of Americans every day. It is the largest health care program in the United States, covering more than 20 percent of the U.S. population. Medicaid serves a diverse array of people, including adults, children, pregnant women, people with disabilities, and senior citizens. Medicaid helps them get the care they need to stay healthy and productive. It’s there for those who need help the most. And it’s a program that allows us to find innovative health solutions so we can deliver better services, promote high-quality care, and lower costs. With so much at stake, it’s important for policymakers and the public to hear real stories from real people whose lives have improved because of Medicaid.
