Initial Lessons Learned from the Expansion of Medicaid to Adults without Dependent Children

Photo uploaded by Dana InglehartOn April 1, 2012, the State of Colorado expanded Medicaid to include adults without dependent children (AwDC) with incomes at or below 10% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). Colorado's AwDC expansion provides a valuable opportunity to understand some of the successes and barriers that may impact further Medicaid expansions to new populations. The Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved (CCMU), along with its partner organizations, was interested in capturing these early lessons and contracted with JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. to conduct interviews with key individuals involved in the expansion. The early lessons learned identified in this project will inform the work of organizations in Colorado as the state prepares for the Medicaid expansions in January 2014 under the Affordable Care Act.
