In nonexpanding Medicaid states, low-income adults were more likely to be black and/or rural residents. They fared much worse than their counterparts in expanding Medicaid states, and had less care utilization as well as fewer prescriptions. While they had lower medical expenditures, they also had higher out of pocket expenditures than their counterparts.
States that do not provide Medicaid will have made their residents worse off in terms of medical care, as well as expanding already existing racial and income gaps.
