The Associated Press on Saturday said at least 3.5 million Americans will lose their current health plans because of President Barack Obama's signature health care program and released a chart showing a state-by-state breakdown.

"Millions of Americans who buy their own health insurance are being informed that their policies will no longer be offered starting in the new year because they do not meet the higher standards of the Affordable Care Act," the AP said. "The actual number of people receiving the notices is unclear, with data unavailable in half the states."
