Mapping Out the Benefits of Medicaid Expansion

Medicaid is essential to our healthcare system. Without it, many individuals would be unable to have their medical needs met. Each state is given the option to participate in Medicaid Expansion, beginning in January 2014. In order to make an informed decision about how this expansion could impact South Carolina families, one must look at the need in our state. Medicaid Expansion is not only intended to help families, but also individuals who have struggled to meet healthcare standards, despite being at or near the poverty level. The following map of South Carolina counties displays how many uninsured people could benefit if the state accepts the Medicaid Expansion:
