Majority of States Have Expanded Medicaid Under ACA

 Thirty-one states and the District of Columbia have expanded Medicaid in accordance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA) but left to states discretion by the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius in 2012. Seven of those states have obtained federal waivers giving them more flexibility in designing their Medicaid programs to reduce costs and improve care.
