    Top 10 states most affected by ACA repeal


    Making good on one of his campaign promises in his first executive order, President Trump directed his administration to take steps that will facilitate the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).


    Although the future of the ACA and what comes next is murky, what is clear is that certain states would suffer more than others from a repeal. In order to assess repeal’s impact on Americans based on where they live, personal-finance website WalletHub analyzed states across seven key metrics that range from “growth of uninsured rate by 2019 post-ACA repeal” to “potential economic impact due to repeal of premium tax credits and Medicaid expansion (2019 to 2023).”

    “The most affected states by the ACA repeal have some of the highest insured rates in the country and have expanded Medicaid,” says WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez.

    Here are the top 10 states that are most affected by repeal of the ACA, according to the report.
