Trends in Medicaid and CHIP Eligibility Over Time

Together these data show that over time Medicaid and CHIP eligibility levels have increased for all eligibility groups. However, there eligibility levels vary substantially across states and across eligibility groups. Eligibility remains higher for pregnant women and children compared to parents and other adults. Moreover, there generally have been widening disparities in access to coverage across states when examining them by geographic region and Medicaid expansion status. In contrast, for most groups, differences in median eligibility limits by state health ranking have narrowed over time.
