“The top map shows the population that is likely to qualify for Medicaid coverage, if they live in a state that is expanding that program. The bottom map captures the Medicaid-eligible population and those who may qualify for subsidies to purchase health insurance in the new marketplaces.  There are two things that these maps tell me. First, they underscore the significant impact that state policy will have on the Affordable Care Act… Second, these maps explain why you see a group like Enroll America focusing its work on 10 states, rather than sweeping out across the country.”
