America’s health care system has reached a crisis point. Every day, 14,000 Americans across the country are losing their health insurance coverage. Americans with health coverage often find that their insurance company won’t cover care when they need it the most, and the broken health care system will cost us between $124 billion and $248 billion in lost productivity this year alone due to the almost 52 million uninsured Americans who live shorter lives and have poorer health.

Take a look at the fact sheets below to see how the health care crisis is affecting your state.
