But what if your income is to low qualify you for ANY health insurance? Happy to report, now there will be help for those who are in South Dakota’s coverage hole! South Dakotans just voted to expand Medicaid! (Amendment D on the Nov.8 ballot) Starting start by July 1, 2023, this very helpful measure will be available to cover adults ages 19-64 whose incomes are below 138% of the poverty line. This is called Medicaid Expansion. It will get health coverage to thousands of South Dakotans, mostly low-wage workers, but also caregivers, people applying for disability, and others who need coverage.
