The Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid Expansion Helps Adults and Children

A key element of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was the requirement that states expand eligibility for Medicaid to 138 percent of the federal poverty level to cover more children and low-income adults, a requirement which became an option for states after a U.S. Supreme Court decision in June 2012. As of July 20, 2015, 30 states and the District of Columbia have taken this option, expanding affordable health coverage to more than 10 million low-income Americans and reducing the rate of uninsurance nationwide from 17.6 percent to 10.1 percent.

Relative Foster Care Licensing Waivers in the States: Policies and Possibilities

On October 7, 2008, the Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act (Fostering Connections) was signed into law, helping to, among other things, ensure that children in foster care maintain family connections. Fostering Connections clarifies that states may waive non-safety licensing standards on a case-by-case basis in order to eliminate barriers to placing children safely with relatives in licensed homes. In an effort to provide states with critical information as they examine their licensing policies and practices, this document presents background information on licensing for relatives. It also includes an overview of IV–E reimbursement for relative foster homes and information on the current landscape of waivers of foster home licensing standards, as well as recommendations for licensing standards that can help further the goal of maintaining family connections for children in foster care.
