SCAA Writes About Medicaid Coverage for Foster Care Children

NY: The Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy (SCAA) published a President’s Corner post highlighting the ACA provision that extends Medicaid coverage to foster youth until age 26, regardless of income. The provision went into effect in January 2014 and offers health insurance to more than 20,000 youth who age out of foster care nation-wide each year. The post notes that the SCAA is working to spread awareness of this provision.
