States as Innovators in Low-Income Health Coverage

The paper provides a typology of innovations which classifies all 50 states into four groups based on the extent to which they expanded coverage beyond required minimums. The policies in the 13 states with the most extensive coverage are described. The most innovative states have higher per capita incomes, higher education levels, larger urban populations, are less politically conservative, have the highest rate of public coverage, and lowest uninsurance rates.
