1. To me this chart does not make sense. Someone making less than
$20,000 should be eligible for Medicaid. And if they have family they can have even higher incomes. So much per person.

2. in some states,that may be the case... Texas isn't one of them
http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/Medicaid/StatePlanDocs/BasicStatePlan.pdf
(if you are bored)

covers children up to a certain age (CHIPS)
mentally/physically disabled
adults over 65 with low incomes.

Texans in good health between 18-64 aren't covered(6.2 million) and 1.8 million kids under 18 aren't covered.
