Where States Stand on Medicaid Expansion

The map below tracks implementation of the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) Medicaid expansion in all states, as of July 29, 2019. The map indicates whether states are using alternative approaches through demonstration waivers, and also features information about state legislation or citizen referendums, governors’ stances, and other analyses. Expanding Medicaid increases coverage for people earning up to 138 percent of the federal poverty level annually.

Orange 14 states are not expanding Medicaid

Green 28 states (count includes Washington, DC) are expanding Medicaid

Light Blue 9 states are expanding Medicaid, but using an alternative to traditional expansion

*This map provides a record of legislation introduced, but does not track the exact status of bills moving in state legislatures. Map is updated when bills pass chambers and/or are signed by a governor.

For information about state proposals to implement Medicaid work requirements, see this chart.

  1. Can you include award dates and vendors that have won these medicaid IES projects and the Medicaid populations by State? Also can you include contract sizes and failed projects as well.
