American healthcare accessibility has remained a national discussion for decades. With the 2010 passing of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, the United States’s executive office sought to narrow insurance disparities through targeting low-income individuals. However, across all fifty states and the District of Columbia, health care coverage still remains unevenly distributed, primarily disadvantaging Latino and African American populations. This comparative analysis seeks to identify regional and racial differences in health care coverage through a quantitative analysis of preexisting government and census data. This research is crucial for capturing how state-level policies and practices deferentially affect minority populations.
