  • PRIVATE OPTION: Enrollment by county.

The monthly report from Arkansas Human Services on enrollment in the Healthcare Independence Program, or private option version of the Medicaid expansion financed by Obamacare:

* 218,844 approved for enrollment

* 212,334

(Includes 24,492 classified as medically frail.)

Of these, 59 percent are women; 81 percent have income below 100 percent of the fedral poverty level; 66 percent are aged 19-44.

The legislature will decide early next year whether to continue this program.
