Obamacare: Enrollment numbers and Medicaid expansion

updated 4:36 PM ET, May 5, 2014

An estimated 48 million Americans are uninsured. Americans are now required to have health insurance. If they aren’t already covered through a job or government program, they have the option to buy a policy through a health insurance marketplace or, in some states, to enroll in a newly expanded Medicaid program. Open enrollment through these programs closed on April 19, 2014. This map shows "the number of individuals who have selected a marketplace plan" in various states, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
