Medicaid Enrollment and Unwinding Tracker
Note: This tracker was first published on May 3 and is updated regularly as new data become available.
The Medicaid continuous enrollment provision, which had halted Medicaid disenrollments since March 2020, ended on March 31, 2023. Primarily due to the continuous enrollment provision, KFF estimates that enrollment in Medicaid/CHIP grew by 23.3 million to nearly 95 million from February 2020 to the end of March 2023. As states unwind the continuous enrollment provision over the next 12 months, they will redetermine eligibility for all Medicaid enrollees and will disenroll those who are no longer eligible or who may remain eligible but are unable to complete the renewal process. Millions of people are expected to lose Medicaid coverage during this unwinding period.
To monitor changes in Medicaid enrollment during the unwinding period, this tracker presents the most recent Medicaid enrollment data available for each state as well as any unwinding data on monthly renewals, disenrollments, and other measures that may be available for a state. The enrollment data are pulled from state websites or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website if a state does not post enrollment on its website and are updated monthly.

States will begin disenrolling people from Medicaid in different months, with some states resuming disenrollments in April, others in May or June, and even July or later for some states. The figure below shows the month in which disenrollments are expected to begin in each state.
