Medicaid Expansion
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) calls for the expansion of state Medicaid programs to increase access to health care coverage. Medicaid is a publicly-funded program that covers health care costs for lower-income Americans who qualify. Although the ACA creates incentives for all states to expand their Medicaid programs; not all have done so due to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ill-conceived 2012 decision allowing states to choose whether or not to expand. The choice not to expand has left a dangerous gap in coverage for millions of Americans, including many living with HIV. Given that the HIV epidemic disproportionately affects lower-income Americans, Medicaid expansion is vital to ensuring access to life-saving health care for thousands of Americans living with HIV and implementation is a necessary condition for the United States to begin the process of ending the HIV epidemic.

AIDS United supports Medicaid expansion and calls on all states that have not yet expanded their Medicaid programs to do so. Learn more by reading the Health Care Access brief.
