This map represents the states where AIM for Equity partners are located and highlights their progress toward implementing the Affordable Care Act’s significant components—the Medicaid Program Expansions and the Health Insurance Exchanges. While these two health policy changes represent an important way for Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AAs & NHPIs) to access health insurance, they are decisions left to the states to implement. Presently, nearly one in seven, or 2.8 million AAs and 162,000 NHPIs, are uninsured and the impact of states adopting a Medicaid Expansion and the Health Insurance Exchange can result in significant decreases in the number of uninsured in our community.
