Nearly 70 million people, including millions of children and adults with disabilities and low-income older adults, depend on the Medicaid program for access to health care and assistance with long-term services and supports (LTSS), which include basic life functions such as eating, dressing and bathing. The program, however, is not always well-understood, and misconceptions have emerged that cloud the picture of how crucial Medicaid is to the delivery of health care and LTSS. This Fact Sheet takes a closer look at these misconceptions and presents the facts about Medicaid, a vital safety net and lifeline to millions of people with limited income and resources.
