Medicaid and Births
About half the births in the United States are paid for by Medicaid - a figure higher than previous estimates - and the numbers could increase as the state-federal health insurance program expands under the Affordable Care Act, according to a study just released.
All pregnant women with incomes below 133 percent of the federal poverty level, just below $15,300 for an individual, are eligible for Medicaid, and many states provide coverage to women earning well above that amount. In Iowa 40.46% of all births are paid for by Medicaid. Here is a list of all.Medicaid Births by state.
