One such problem is the stigma attached to Medicaid in many states because of its link to welfare. Medicaid is a federal-state program that purchases basic health and long-term care services on behalf of 51 million Americans. Because of the size of the population it covers and the cost of the services it buys, Medicaid is also the federal government’s largest program of financial assistance to state governments.
