These graphics represent the current and potential future patchwork of primary sources of health insurance coverage for Arkansans based upon existing policy.

If expanded as depicted in the second graphic, Arkansas Medicaid would increase eligibility to adults earning less than 139 percent of the FPL, regardless of assets. In addition, ARKids B would become 100 percent federally funded.
