Most of the Nebraska residents who could gain health coverage if the state expands Medicaid are working adults. If Nebraska chooses to accept federal dollars to expand Medicaid, those who would qualify for health coverage are families with incomes of up to 138 percent of poverty ($27,310 for a family of three in 2014). Our analysis finds that 73 percent of this population is employed.

Our infographic shows the top occupations held by these uninsured Nebraskans. Read our related issue brief (PDF), view the methodology (PDF), and learn more about other states.
