The Poverty-Reducing Effect of Medicaid

Medicaid provides health insurance for more than 54 million Americans. In this paper, featured at last year's Fall Research Conference, authors Benjamin D. Sommers and Donald Oellerich use the Census Bureau's supplemental poverty measure to estimate the impact of eliminating the program. They found that Medicaid kept between 2.6 and 3.4 million people out of poverty in 2010, making it the country's third-largest antipoverty program.
