Joe Keady is a freelance translator in Brookland. He’s not making much money right now, and he qualifies for health coverage under Medicaid. He worries he’ll get kicked off the program if or when he makes more money.

“We really had decided to do it anyway. So it’s just a matter of like, what’s the trigger?” says Keady, 45.
