Exploring the Alignment of SNAP and Medicaid Eligibility
This slide program was used as the basis for an exploratory conference call on January 6, 2012, with a group of state administrators, including SNAP administrators. The call's purpose was to identify preliminary discussion issues around the possibility of aligning SNAP more closely with the changes in medical assistance that are expected due to the Affordable Care Act or to other steps states are taking to strengthen health care eligibility procedures and contain health care costs. The issues listed include several policy areas that will likely be examined as this discussion moves forward. None of them necessarily represent APHSA policy.
Center for Budget & Policy Priorities' National Program Integration Task Force released an issue paper identifying and evaluating opportunities to align eligibility and enrollment policies & procedures between SNAP & Medicaid. (2015)
