@snowwolf Actually, there's a... gap. You need to make a certain minimum to pay in fees to be covered, lets say 10.000 USD a year (example, I have no idea how much you'd actually have to earn to be able to afford Obamacare). To qualify for medicaid, though, you need to at most earn, say, 3.000 USD. That means there's a gap between 3.000 and 10.000 that can't be covered. It should, however, be mentioned that the Obama administration offered states to pay... 80% was it? to have the people in that gap covered as well, but the states said no... mostly the states with a republican senator, to no surprise to.. anyone.
