The most vulnerable states are those that don’t have universal coverage for most residents, according to a new study by the Urban Institute.
That means states like Florida and Texas would be the most vulnerable.
Florida and Florida’s legislature have voted to extend coverage to more than half of residents in those states, and the Supreme Court has struck down a similar law in a decision that will take effect next year.
But as we mentioned in the introduction to this story, there are a few other factors that can help make a state more vulnerable to an insurer, like the fact that it doesn’t have a large population.
Here’s a rundown of the states most vulnerable, with a quick look at how the ACA could affect them.
New York: It’s the most populous state, but it doesn “get” insurance.
The state doesn’t offer health insurance at all, but many people rely on Medicaid, a federal program that pays for low-income residents to stay in their homes and cover the costs of basic health care, including hospitalization.
While New York has a population of 6.3 million, it also has one of the lowest uninsured rates in the country.
A federal law called the Affordable Care Act has made it easier for states to expand Medicaid to more people.
But the state also faces significant budget challenges and a lack of a strong economic base.
In 2019, state budget problems would have made it almost impossible to keep the expansion going, said David Miller, a senior fellow at the Urban Forum.
“You don’t need to look far to find a state that’s at risk,” he said.
In New York, the state’s uninsured rate has remained steady for nearly three years.
“If you look at what we did in the state, we’re still doing pretty well,” said state Sen. Anthony Scaramucci, who introduced the Senate bill in September that would create a statewide health care system that would include the expansion of Medicaid.
“But if you look in New York City, they’re going to see how we’re going and how we could have done better.”
Florida: The Sunshine State has the lowest rate of uninsured people in the nation, at 6.5 percent.
In 2020, that would be a high number, but Florida is facing major budget issues.
A state budget bill passed in March would have slashed $9 billion from the state budget over 10 years, which is expected to reduce the state from a $2.5 billion budget deficit in 2021 to a $1.5 million deficit in 2022.
The Senate’s budget plan would also raise the age of eligibility for Medicaid to 65 from 21 to 25.
“It’s going to be a real burden for Florida to continue to make the commitment to Medicaid,” said John Goglia, director of the Institute on Budget and Policy Priorities.
“This is going to have to be one of those issues that you’ve got to look at the impact and see how much of it is going into the state system and how much is going in the private insurance market.”
Florida’s Medicaid program provides a way for low income people to buy private health insurance, but not all Florida residents can buy it.
The Affordable Care Court ruled in March that Florida’s program was unconstitutional because it was too restrictive.
“The state is facing a significant budgetary challenge, so that could create some challenges,” said Gogli.
“We’re going into 2019 with a $4.5-billion deficit, so we’re not in a great position to have that money coming out of our pockets for the next 10 years.”
North Carolina: The Tar Heel state’s Medicaid expansion is projected to expand by 50 percent between 2020 and 2021.
That would allow about a third of the state population to gain access to Medicaid, but the state is also facing major challenges.
According to the National Association of Medicaid Directors, the number of uninsured in the North Carolina area will increase by nearly 7 million people over the next five years.
A projected $1 billion shortfall from the expansion will make it difficult to maintain coverage, which means people will be forced to shop around for coverage.
If a plan in North Carolina is unaffordable, people may choose not to apply for Medicaid.
This means some people will have to drop out of the Medicaid program altogether.
This could result in a significant number of people who need help getting coverage dropping off the rolls.
In a 2017 study, researchers at Georgetown University found that North Carolina residents who were uninsured had lower incomes and lower wages than those who were insured.
A similar study found that people who did not have health insurance in 2019 would be more likely to drop off the Medicaid rolls.
New Jersey: The Garden State has been working to expand its Medicaid program.
In the 2020-21 budget, the legislature approved a bill to allow the state to offer a wide range of benefits to people with limited income.
The bill also included an expansion of the number and type of benefits that can be provided under the program, and it would allow for
