The outline of the paper is as follows. In the next section we briefly lay out the background of the Medicaid program and discuss our data and econometric model. We employ a simple reduced form model of the effects of Medicaid on labor supply and welfare participation. In Section III we discuss the development of our Medicaid and private health insurance "heterogeneity" indexes, and we present our results in Section IV. A summary appears in Section V.
