Abstract

Although often under researched and overlooked, millions of Americans are ineligible to receive healthcare support due to a lack of insurance coverage. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in 2010, the primary goal was to provide Medicaid coverage to many Americans who were previously uninsured. Despite this, millions of Americans still remain ineligible based on the tightly fixed requirements that determine eligibility. This leaves many low income families, including susceptible children, living in poor health. Drawing from existing survey research, this paper argues for the fixation of the coverage gap that leaves many Americans uninsured and hopeless, as well as for a change in extortionate healthcare costs as insurance coverage is often still not enough to afford good healthcare.
