Running head: MEDICAID





Medicaid was an initiative by former President Barack Obama under the Affordable Care
Act that is under review by Congress in a bid to decide whether to replace the act. The Medicaid
program was formally conceptualized to cater to the lives of low-income earners as well as the
elderly in society. Medicaid has proven to be an effective program as statistics show it covers 1
in every five Americans thereby covering 74 million Americans. The program was later
expanded to include the middle class. However, with the proposition of the House’s proposed
American Health Care Act, the probability is that the Obama Care will be eradicated or simply
phased out through replacement.
The Medicaid program has since been expanded in North Dakota amongst other states
where the Governor argues it is up to respective governors to achieve flexibility and determine
how the Medicaid funds are spent. With the expansion of the program both adults and children
living above the poverty line will be covered through accessible dental checkups, health
insurance that is affordable as well as insurance plans made available to the people (Silva, 2017
)Initially the Medicaid program was meant to cover millions of Americans with low income
including pregnant women, children, disabled people and the elderly through granting health
coverage. The program is administered to various states strictly abiding by the requirements laid
down by the federal government which funds the program jointly with other states (Medicaid,

challenges as they wouldn’t have access to insurance and would therefore either be uninsured or
even underinsured. The program covers an average of one in five Americans which goes to show
how effective the program really is. The expansion by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) would
make it such that the Medicaid program reached a multitude of adults with low income who had
been excluded from the coverage prior while at the same time it made federal funding accessible
to the states adopting the expansion. Albeit the program facing challenges from President Donald
Trump’s presidency as well as some GOP leaders who are seeking to implement changes to the
program, the program has since shown great promise in accounting for the health of numerous
Americans under the Medicaid program (Paradise, 2017).
Medicaid is very effective with regard to cost in such a manner that it makes health
coverage accessibl...
