NOTES: Percentages may not sum to 100% due to rounding.*LA’s Medicaid Expansion is expected to take effect by July 1, 2016. For purposes of this analysis, LA is considered an expansion state. ^ Tax Credit Eligible share in MN and NY includes adults who are eligible for coverage through the Basic Health Plan. † WI covers adults up to 100% FPL in Medicaid under a waiver but did not adopt the ACA expansion. Some estimates are “N/A” because point estimates do not meet minimum standards for statistical reliability. “-“ indicates state does not have a Medicaid coverage gap.
