In general, Section waivers allow states to operate demonstration projects that further the goals of the Medicaid program. Among the major uses of these funds were 1 early initiatives—overseen by counties—to provide coverage to populations that would become newly eligible for Medi—Cal under the ACA, 2 incentive payments for public hospitals to improve and ready their health systems for these incoming enrollees, and 3 offsets to state spending for certain state—only health programs.

Several factors—such as enrollment simplification, publicity, and outreach—will increase Medi—Cal enrollment among individuals who were previously eligible, but unenrolled—often referred to as the mandatory expansion.
