Medicaid Enrollment Approaches 7 Million

Reuters: “New enrollments in Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion and other healthcare programs for the poor have reached 6.7 million people since the launch of President Barack Obama’s healthcare reforms last year, the administration said on Friday.”

“The figures, which include state Medicaid plans that existed before Obamacare and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, show enrollment climbing by 920,000 people during May, the latest month for which data is available. All told, new enrollments are up 11.4 percent since last October’s Obamacare rollout.”

“CMS said enrollment in Medicaid programs have risen 17 percent in 25 states and the District of Columbia, which have expanded Medicaid. New enrollments were only 3 percent higher in states that have not.”
