Low-income adults, whether uninsured, covered by Medicaid, or covered by private health insurance, generally reported better access to health care in states that expanded Medicaid. In this context, low-income is defined as annual income less than or equal to 138% of the federal poverty level, which is $16,753 for a single adult or $33,885 for a household of four.
