Nearly a quarter of Alaska’s 740,000 residents are covered by Medicaid, which Gov. Bill Walker expanded under the ACA. Only about 19,000 Alaskans get insurance on the individual market, resulting in a tiny pool across which insurers can spread costs. as costs mount, many of those who gained coverage under the law or have affordable plans are fearful about losing their lifeline.–Health%20Overhaul-Alaska/id-e564a48aba2a4490a66409cb4ec04c00
