Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman released new reports on the benefits of the Affordable Care Act in every congressional district in the country. These reports provide the first picture of the impacts of the law in districts following the opening of the new health insurance marketplaces, the expansion of Medicaid, and the end of discrimination based on pre-existing health conditions. They show that millions of Americans have already gained health insurance coverage because of the ACA and that tens of millions more are benefitting from the law’s reforms of Medicare and the private insurance market. The reports also demonstrate how many Americans remain uninsured because of some states’ decisions to not accept the Medicaid expansion.
