May 19, 2015
"[T]he share of Americans ages 50 to 64 without health insurance fell by nearly a third, from 11.6 percent to 8.0 percent, between December 2013 and December 2014. Overall, the number of 50- to 64-year olds with health coverage increased by approximately 2.2 million between December 2013 and December 2014.... The 27 states that chose to expand Medicaid eligibility as of December 2014 saw the largest drop in the uninsured rate among the 50- to 64-year-old age group, from 9.8 percent in December 2013 to 5.5 percent in December 2014. States that did not expand their Medicaid programs saw a smaller decrease in their uninsured rate among this age group, from 13.8 percent to 11.0 percent."
