Here are just a few examples of how. Maine children, the elderly, and people with disabilities derive the greatest benefit. But we are all better off when kids get a healthy start, when our parents and grandparents receive proper nursing home care, when people don’t have to rely on emergency rooms but can see a doctor before they become sicker and require more expensive care. Medicaid isn’t just good for Maine health care; it is good for Maine’s economy and the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of Mainers.
