  •  The case of Oregon... (0+ / 0-)

    Didn’t Oregon use food stamps as a rather creative way to determine eligibility for Medicaid? In that case, we’re talking about transfers, yes – but not transfers from other existing healthcare programs.

    •  Then there are those who were already eligible... (0+ / 0-)

      Even states that are refusing to expand Medicaid are seeing expanded enrollment, in this case from people who were already qualified based on pre-ACA eligibility criteria.

      Some may not wish to count those. Although they have a point, formally speaking, I would nevertheless disagree. Hundreds of thousand of those people are enrolling in Medicaid precisely because of the added attention brought by HealthCare.gov and the state insurance exchanges.
