The Urban Institute Health Policy Center issued a report finding that most of the newly insured adults are in the income groups targeted by the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion and the health insurance marketplaces. Nearly half of the newly insured adults (49.4%) have family incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL), the income group targeted by the Medicaid expansion. Another 40.1% have family income between 139 and 399% of FPL, the income group that could be eligible for subsidized coverage through the marketplace. Only 10.5% of the newly insured adults have family income at or above 400% of FPL.
