Health law reducing uninsured more in states accepting reform
San Francisco Chronicle

President Obama’s health care law has become a tale of two Americas.

States that fully embraced the law’s coverage expansion are experiencing a significant drop in the number of uninsured residents, according to a survey released Tuesday. States whose leaders still object to the law are seeing much less change.

The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found an overall drop of four percentage points in the share of uninsured residents for states accepting the law’s core coverage provisions.
