Emily was diagnosed with breast cancer just five months after she was laid off from her job as a software developer, right in the middle of the economic downturn in 2009. After her tumor was removed, she couldn’t afford to keep paying for insurance coverage, so she skipped out on chemotherapy and radiation. The cancer came back. Emily is now dead.

Emily’s primary care doctor says her story may have ended differently if she had been able to access coverage under Obamacare’s optional Medicaid expansion. But she lives in Utah, where lawmakers have resisted implementing that policy, despite the fact that it’s a central tenet of the health reform law.
