Where does your state stand on Medicaid Expansion?

Where does your state stand?

About half the states are using health reform to cover millions of uninsured, giving a break to local taxpayers and hospitals that had been paying for their care. But some states are refusing to cover very low-income people, even though money is available. See if your state did the right thing.

And if you are among those who buy their own insurance, or simply can't afford it, tell us about it. We want to make sure the law works for you.

We asked you to snap a quick photo of you and your refund, and tell us how that money would help. From your photos, we compiled this quick video to show lawmakers and state insurance commissioners that these checks mattered.
