Footnotes: If Texas were to expand its Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act, adults age 18-64 living at or below 138% of the federal poverty level would become eligible for Medicaid. Currently, these adults are not eligible unless pregnant, disabled, or are parents receiving TANF (living at or below 12% of the federal poverty line).
