The Medicaid program is currently undergoing the largest change in enrollment since the program’s inception in 1965. With millions of individuals transitioning out of the program, a key issue is assessing how redeterminations are going relative to expectations in “real-time.” An assessment is especially relevant since timely and systematic tracking is cumbersome and state approaches vary significantly. In this piece, we review why the current changes to Medicaid are so unprecedented, how enrollment changes compare to expectations at a state level, and what lessons should be learned from this experience to improve coverage for eligible individuals in the future.
