More than 500,000 Pennsylvanians have health insurance for the first time through the state's expanded Medicaid program. More than half of the people receiving coverage through the Medicaid expansion are 40 years old or younger, and nearly 60% are white. Department of Human Services Secretary Ted Dallas said in 2013 the state had an uninsured rate of 14% and today the number is now at 8%. The state hopes to enroll as many as 600,000 people.
