The Health Coverage Gap leaves many Americans without health insurance. In 2016 the gap still affects as many as 3.1 million people. These are mostly working families who earn too little to qualify for marketplace subsidies yet they earn too much to qualify for Medicaid in states that have chosen not to expand its income limits.
This means that Medicaid eligibility limits in the non-expansion states are incredibly low – just look at Texas, where a parent earning $3,760 is making too much to qualify for Medicaid.
The Health Coverage Gap leaves far too many Americans without health insurance. We pulled some numbers from the Kaiser Family Foundation’s latest research on the coverage gap into this one simple infographic.
