The Medicaid population in one chart

Here’s an illuminating chart brought to my attention by Jim Hufford. Pay close attention to how spending is broken out by Medicaid eligibility category. The disabled and elderly dominate within the top 5% of spenders. Kids and parents may not be consuming as much of Medicaid spending but the benefits are still very important to them.

UPDATE: I initially misread the chart. Fixed my text.
