Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured
On June 3, the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured released its “Medicaid Enrollment Snapshot: December 2013” issue brief.
Authored by Kaiser’s Laura Snyder and Robin Rudowitz and HMA’s Eileen Ellis and Dennis Roberts, the report indicates that as of December 2013, nearly 55.4 million people were enrolled in Medicaid. That’s an increase of 585,000 enrollees from the prior year, but the slowest growth since before the Great Recession.
The report examines changes in monthly Medicaid enrollment from December 2012 to December 2013 and the factors that influenced those changes in a variety of ways.
