ABSTRACT
The article reports that Maryland Medicaid has increased its coverage of parents from around 30% of federal poverty level (FPL) to 116% as of July 2008. Maryland Medicaid is planning to extend benefits to childless adults, who are covered under Maryland's HealthChoice waiver. Quality improvement (QI) initiatives reportedly continue as they have not been affected by the recession. John G. Folkemer of Maryland's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said that there is an increase in eligibility in Maryland's Medicaid program.
