Changes between 2013 and 2016 reflect the conversion to use of Modified Adjusted Gross Income to determine financial eligibility under the ACA. In addition, a number of non-expansion states tie parent eligibility to a dollar value that does not regularly adjust. As such, its value as a percent of the FPL erodes over time as the FPL increases each year.

In some states that had expanded coverage to adults prior to the ACA, the new adult group includes some adults that were previously eligible through these pre-ACA expansions. These adults may be matched at a rate lower than the 100% rate for 2014-2016.
