Low-income adults in expansion states are less like to report having unmet medical needs, are less likely to forego care because of cost, are more likely to have a usual place of care, and are more likely to receive selected health care services (like getting a flu shot or a blood pressure check) than their peers in states that did not expand Medicaid.

More than 4,100 Arkansans lost Medicaid coverage on Oct. 1, adding to the more than 4,350 adults in the state who were kicked off the Medicaid roles on Sept. 1. These nearly 8,500 adults lost their coverage due to the state’s harsh new work reporting requirements, which require beneficiaries to report at least 80 hours of work or work-related activities every month.
