States Not Expanding Medicaid are Paying 37% of the Cost ($152 Billion) to Extend the Program in Other States

If the 23 non-expansion states continue to do so, they will pay $152 billion to extend to program in the expansion states. Most of this money (nearly $88 billion) is coming from the taxpayers of 5 non-expansion states; Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia.
