More Facts on Medicaid Expansion:
Currently, 26 states and the District of Columbia have expanded Medicaid under the ACA and 24 states have not.
In 2016, 5.7 million people could be deprived of health insurance coverage if the states that have chosen not to expand Medicaid continue to refuse.
Under the ACA, the federal government will pay 100 percent of the costs of Medicaid expansion through 2016. The federal match reduces gradually to 90 percent in 2020, but will remain at that level.
