This report focuses on changes in monthly Medicaid enrollment between December 2012 and December 2013. This is a long standing report series that collects monthly Medicaid enrollment data for December (and June, not reported here) going back to 2000. While the most recent data included in this report predate preliminary data released by CMS that show the early effects of full implementation of the ACA, this report series is an important source of historical trend data that provides the necessary context to understand these new sources of Medicaid enrollment data. In addition to providing historical trends, these data also provide more detail about enrollment, such as the distribution of the enrollment among children, adults,or the elderly and people with disabilities, as well as Medicaid enrollment trends for each of these groups.
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) expansion of Medicaid to adults with incomes at or below 138% of the federal poverty level (FPL) effectively became a state option following the Supreme Court decision, creating a “coverage gap” for many poor uninsured adults in states that do not expand Medicaid. This brief examines the coverage gap by race and ethnicity.

Recent Trends in Medicaid and CHIP Enrollment as of January 2015: Early Findings from the CMS Performance Indicator Project
Building on earlier work examining the Performance Indicator Project, this is an updated analysis examining recent trends in Medicaid and CHIP eligibility and enrollment. As of January 2015, 70.0 million people were enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP. Nearly two-thirds of enrollees resided in states that have implemented the Medicaid expansion. Between Summer 2013 and January 2015, there was a net increase of nearly 11.2 million people enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP; states that expanded Medicaid experienced significantly greater net Medicaid and CHIP enrollment growth than states that have not expanded. Children account for a greater share of total Medicaid and CHIP enrollment in nearly all states that have not expanded Medicaid compared to states that have expanded.
The Kaiser Health Policy News Index is designed to help journalists and policymakers understand which health policy-related news stories Americans are paying attention to, and what the public understands about health policy issues covered in the news. This month’s Index finds that the public followed the missing Malaysia Airlines flight and the conflict between Ukraine and Russia more closely than news about ACA enrollment. Additionally, many Americans remain unaware of the status of Medicaid expansion in their own states.
