Medicaid Enrollment: June 2013 Data Snapshot
This Data Snapshot provides 50-state data on Medicaid monthly enrollment trends, adding new data for June 2013. Overall, Medicaid enrollment growth continued to slow to the lowest rate since the start of the Great Recession as the economic conditions continued to slowly improve. Looking ahead, Medicaid enrollment growth is expected to increase significantly as states implement the ACA. This report provides baseline data for understanding the impact of the ACA eligibility and enrollment policies on enrollment growth across states. Future reports will examine the changes in trends across states and eligibility groups, especially differences between states that are implementing the Medicaid expansion in 2014 and states not moving forward with the expansion at this time.
