Wisconsin’s Medicaid plan covers children from 0-5 years old whose parents have income below 150% of the poverty line. Sixty percent of Massachusetts residence receive coverage through their employer compared to 53% nationwide. Forty-six percent of Californian firms with less than 50 employees offer health insurance compared to the national average of 43%.
How did I know these facts? Am I a genius?
No, I used the State Coverage Initiatives website provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The website has a nice summary of each state’s SCHIP, Medicaid eligibility rules and well as graphs showing where individuals do (or don’t) receive insurance coverage.
