States that accept healthcare law see fewer uninsured

The Columbus-Dispatch, August 7, 2014
President Barack Obama's health-care law has become a tale of two Americas. States that fully embraced the law's coverage expansion are experiencing a significant drop in the number of uninsured residents, according to a major new survey released yesterday. States whose leaders still object to so-called Obamacare are seeing much less change. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found an overall drop of 4 percentage points in the share of uninsured residents for states accepting the law's core-coverage provisions. Those are states that expanded their Medicaid programs and also built or took an active role managing new online insurance markets.
