Nearly 50% of non-elderly who are uninsured are eligible for Medicaid or subsidized premiums under Obamacare. Yikes😎
Why is the question; I suspect one of the reasons is an irrational opposition to Obamacare otherwise known as shooting yourself in the foot. Cost and simply not paying attention are others, especially when it comes to Medicaid.
Note that category “In the coverage gap.” These are people who earn too much to be eligible for Medicaid and earn too little to be eligible for Obamacare. This group was created by the states who did not expand Medicaid under the new rules. Among the 20 states that haven’t expanded Medicaid, the largest number of people in the coverage gap live in Texas (766,000 people), Florida (567,000), Georgia (305,000), and North Carolina (244,000).
