Medicaid Enrollment Tops 3 Million

National Journal: “Three million additional people have enrolled in Medicaid coverage as of the end of February, compared with pre-Obamacare figures, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced Friday.”

“The report finds that as of the end of the fifth month of open enrollment under the Affordable Care Act, 3 million more people are enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP programs, compared with the average total enrolled between July and September of last year.”

“As of the last day in February, about 62.3 million individuals were enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP in the 48 states reporting enrollment information—more than 20 percent of the U.S. population.”

“Comparative data on how much enrollment fluctuated prior to the ACA are not available. And we still do not know how many of those enrolled in Medicaid coverage are newly eligible under the health care law.”
