Status of State Action on the Medicaid Expansion- Feb 2023

Map showing that 40 states plus the District of Columbia have chosen Medicaid expansion since it became an option in late 2012.

North Carolina is one of 11 states that has not chosen Medicaid expansion since the policy was made available as a result of the Affordable Care Act in late 2012. Medicaid expansion would provide coverage to nearly all adults with incomes up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level. Adopting expansion in North Carolina would provide health coverage to more than half a million low-income North Carolinians, including thousands of justice-involved individuals currently cycling in and out of the state’s prisons and jails.
