Abstract
Medicaid, passed 40 years ago with Medicare, had roots in the decades-long public assistance programs which preceded it. These roots are still evident today. This article explores the origin and passage of the Medicaid Program in 1965, describes key statutory provisions, and reflects on the resulting strengths and weaknesses of the program today.
