The Advisory Board Company: State Decisions on Medicaid Expansion and Health Insurance Exchanges

This is an updated map from The Advisory Board Company on each state’s decision about whether to expand Medicaid eligibility and implement a state-run health insurance exchange to implement the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  According to the latest information, at least nine states (Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, and Texas) have decided not to expand Medicaid eligibility for their residents whose income are below 133 percent of the Federal Poverty Level.  Based on this June’s United States Supreme Court decision upholding the Affordable Care Act, states will be able to continue participation in the Medicaid program without implementing this expansion.
