As part of the "control group" (living in a state that opted-out of accepting ACA funds for Medicaid expansion), these results do not surprise me.

I very much wish that every US citizen had the benefit of this law and program, rather than having harsh geographical inequalities.

"Extension of Medicaid eligibility under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has not only shielded low-income Americans from out-of-pocket medical costs, but has also improved their overall financial health."

But our states (we're 'control group', too) beloved leaders do not care about the financial health of the people; after all, if you just work hard you'll succeed like they have! Of course, they have good health insurance for life now...
