This report presents information on overlaps in eligible and participating populations in various health and human services programs, and identifies three main human services programs – the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), and the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) – as having considerable overlap with health insurance programs and high potential for possible integration and coordination efforts in states that implement the Medicaid expansion. The paper’s appendix presents an analytic framework for possible data usage strategies across programs.
