As a result of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the number of people eligible for Medicaid increased, known as Medicaid expansion. Medicaid Expansion is not mandatory since the Supreme Court ruled that states are not required to expand their Medicaid coverage. However. most states have expanded their coverage. As a result, 11 million people have gained coverage in expansion states. Our partners at Health Care for the Homeless found that homeless patients are nearly five times more likely to have gained insurance since 2013 if they live in a state that has expanded Medicaid.
Repeal of the ACA is a repeal of Medicaid expansion.
If this happens, the most vulnerable people will be disproportionately impacted including many people experiencing homelessness who will lose their healthcare coverage. It's up to us to protect the care of people experiencing homelessness.
