Last week, the Kaiser Family Foundation launched a new tool that lets users track federal funding made available by the Affordable Care Act.

According to Kaiser, Kansas has received $63 million in ACA funding — to both private and governmental entities. That puts Kansas on the lower end of the health reform funding spectrum, receiving more than only nine other states. Per capita, Kansas ranked fourth from the bottom, bringing in $23.05.

Kaiser fact sheet provides national highlights from the ACA funds tracker.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this posting incorrectly stated that Kansas had received $63 billion in ACA funding instead of $63 million.
