The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) expanded Medicaid eligibility to include more people who couldn’t otherwise obtain health insurance. As written, the ACA would extend Medicaid to all adults with incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level. (For a single person in Connecticut in 2020, that’s $17,609. For a family of four, it’s $36,156.)

However, the U.S. Supreme Court later ruled that it was up to individual states to decide whether to expand Medicaid. As of August 2020, 12 states have not expanded their programs.

Connecticut Has Expanded Medicaid

Because Connecticut did decide to expand its Medicaid program, residents can qualify for Medicaid more easily today than in years past.
