If I am already receiving Medicaid, should I re-apply now using the new system to get more benefits under the Affordable Care Act?

No. You should follow the re-application timing you received when you were granted benefits. It is important to know that there are no new benefits associated with Medicaid under ACA.

Those who do not qualify for Medicaid will be directed to the The Health Insurance Marketplace at There they can consider other health plan options so they can comply with ACA and avoid an income tax penalty.
