It appears that Montana’s uninsured rate has remained relatively constant since the state expanded Medicaid in 2016. In January 2018, approximately 979,257 Montanans had health coverage, out of a total population of 1,062,330, resulting in an estimated uninsured rate of 7.8 percent. Since 2012, when the uninsured rate in Montana was at least 20 percent and approximately 195,000 people were uncovered, the number of uncovered individuals has decreased to about 83,000 in 2018.
