Editor's note: In response to reader questions, we've added information from more states and on chronic diseases. We've also updated the Q&A with information on the July 13 changes to the Senate bill. Keep asking; we'll keep updating!
When covering the GOP efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, we tend to focus on the big picture: billions of cuts in Medicaid spending, say, or millions fewer people with health coverage.
But the real impacts would be felt in states, cities and towns, and they would vary a lot depending on where you live, how old you are and your particular health concerns. Reporters for NPR and NPR member stations across the country have delved into those geographic and demographic impacts; their reporting fuels this Q&A, which you can search by topic and locale.
