Demographics of Medicaid enrollees change as coverage expands

An interview with Tammy Chang, the lead author of a University of Michigan Medical School study, examining the new faces of Medicaid.

As Medicaid expansion is coming, we’re starting to get a better picture of who will be covered. Much of Medicaid now is spent on people in nursing homes. But the expansion will include a lot of younger people, low-income workers.

A new study from the University of Michigan Medical School looks at the likely demographics and Tammy Chang, the lead author of that study, joined us in the studio to discuss the new faces of Medicaid. 

Listen to the interview above.
