WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration says nearly 3.9 million people have qualified for coverage through the health care law's Medicaid expansion.
The numbers released Friday cover the period from Oct. 1 to Nov. 30 and underscore a pattern of Medicaid outpacing the law's expansion of private insurance.
Through the same time period, about 365,000 people had signed up for subsidized private insurance through new federal and state markets.
President Barack Obama's health overhaul expanded Medicaid to cover people making up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level, about $15,860 for an individual and $32,500 for a family of four.
