Montana Snapshots

Remarkably, the benefits of SNAP extend beyond the basic dignity of an adequate diet. Research has shown that SNAP recipients report better health than other low-income individuals not on SNAP, and seniors receiving SNAP are less likely than low-income non-participants to have to forgo medicine due to costs. Some research even suggests that SNAP may help seniors live independently and avoid hospitalization. In total, adults on SNAP incur roughly 25 percent less per year in medical care costs than low-income non-participants. That’s not just good news for SNAP recipients; that’s good for all of us concerned about the growing costs of health care.
