Access to and Participation in Medicaid and the Food Stamp Program: A Review of the Recent Literature
AbstractReviews and synthesizes what is known about the drop in Medicaid and food stamp participation, as well as the reasons for the decline and potential strategies for increasing participation. The report finds evidence of barriers to access and participation, some predating welfare reform and some related to TANF, and points out the need to better understand the operations of local offices that are successful in enrolling and retaining clients in these programs.
