This report provides updated estimates in light of Arkansas's recently proposed option for covering low-income adults through private health plans in the state insurance exchange. These estimates find that the private option can be fully funded with existing resources at the state level and would add less than 15% to federal health-care costs in Arkansas. In some realistic scenarios, there could be no additional federal costs at all.
