Once fully implemented, expansion of the Medicaid program would benefit residents all across Washington state.

Expanding Medicaid would result in over 260,000 Washingtonians gaining access to health coverage. The benefits would reach all corners of the state. As shown in the map below, expanding Medicaid would greatly reduce the number of Washingtonians who lack health insurance coverage. Benefits are particularly high in many rural counties where 35 to 50 percent of those currently uninsured would become eligible for coverage.
