Medicaid eligibility by state

For some context, here is a figure of Medicaid eligibility by state (from here, backed up by data here).

So, in Utah one must make below ~$8,000/yr to qualify for Medicaid (and adults without children are not eligible). This may be handy to keep in mind the next time you hear someone in Utah complaining about people living large on the government's dime. Also notice what an amazing difference there is between the states; it's a wonder that the more lower income folks don't decamp for Minnesota, DC, etc.
