The new health care legislation has far reaching consequences in many areas and among these is Medicaid. The law seeks to use the Medicaid system to expand overall health care coverage for those who cannot afford to pay starting in 2014. Federal funds will be available, initially, to help states with the additional costs, but many states are facing acute budget shortfalls now and are unable to provide health care services to people already on their rolls.
