A national report on a Medicaid “coverage gap” determined that 318,710 North Carolinians will remain uninsured despite the rollout of the health exchanges through the Affordable Care Act.

The Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit focused on health care issues facing the United States, reported that North Carolina has the fifth-highest number of low-income individuals in that gap for the 26 states that chose not to expand their Medicaid coverage as of Jan. 1. Most of the 26 states have Republican governors and/or Republican-controlled legislatures.
