ADAPs With Other Cost-Containment Strategies: Financial Eligibility (Instituted Since September 2009, as of September 26, 2012)
Since September 2009, six ADAPs previously lowered their financial eligibility as part of their cost-containment plans. Illinois, North Dakota, Ohio and South Carolina lowered their eligibility level to 300 % FPL. Utah lowered its eligibility level to 250% FPL. Arkansas lowered its eligibility level to 200% FPL. Previously, income eligibility for the states noted above was 400% FPL or higher. As a result of these measures, a total of 445 individuals in three states (Arkansas - 99, Ohio - 257, and Utah 89) were disenrolled. Illinois, North Dakota, and South Carolina grandfathered clients that were previously eligible based on their income level into their programs. No other ADAPs currently report anticipating further changes to their financial eligibility.
