For states that have expanded Medicaid, some individuals who once had private coverage are now being forced onto Medicaid – a public health insurance program that fails to meet its intentions of providing accessible medical care to low-income patients. Jeffrey Singer, general surgeon and adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute, explains in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal:

A recent Boston University/Harvard Medical School study suggests that up to 80% of people participating in ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion have been shifted off their private insurance. These patients’ plans—that they liked, and were told they could keep—did not meet Affordable Care Act requirements, and were wiped out. offered them Medicaid.
