Mick Tilford stated that the present survey report is a vindication that only the white population of America has got the benefits of Medicaid.

In the US, citizens can easily obtain Medicaid based on disability, income, family status, size of the household, etc. At present, the ACA has made some formulation in the policy due to which people can only obtain the policy if they have an annual household income below the poverty line which was decided by Federal law and enforcement.
