Advocate's Guide to the Medicaid Program (AGMP)

Executive Summary

Since 1986, the Advocate's Guide to the Medicaid Program has been the leading authoritative reference on Medicaid for a quick, convenient way to understand the program. Advocates, policy makers, and others rely on the Guide to ensure that the Medicaid program is implemented as the law intends, and that eligible low-income people can access the services that Medicaid provides. NHeLP’s newly updated fourth edition of the Advocate’s Guide is available in hard copy, as well as by online membership and features interactive web features, such as live updates and user forums. The updated Guide incorporates the Affordable Care Act (2010), 2012 Supreme Court ruling and major developments in Medicaid law over the past year and a half. The Guide also covers Medicaid administration, eligibility, and services, and includes comprehensive references to sources of Medicaid law and rules, including the United States Constitution, the Medicaid Act, Medicaid regulations, federal guidance documents, and federal and state court case law. Support for this guide was provided by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
