Georgia Medicaid Eligibility

I keep seeing comments on other blogs that claim there is no problem with health care for poor people, because there is Medicaid. Totally not true.

In Georgia, the cut-off point for people to get Medicaid purely for low-income reasons is shown below. Children are eligible with higher family incomes.
