Medicare Advantage in 2022: Enrollment Update and Key Trends

In 2022, nearly half of (48%) eligible Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage enrollment as a share of the eligible Medicare population has more than doubled from 2007 to 2022. This brief provides current information about Medicare Advantage enrollment, including the types of plans in which Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled, and how enrollment varies across geographic areas.

KFF Analysts Find That Between 5.3 Million and 14.2 Million People Could Lose Medicaid Coverage Following the End of the Public Health Emergency and Continuous Enrollment Requirement, With an Unknown Number Able to Find New Coverage

The Enrollment Growth is Expected to Cost States Over $47 Billion Through FY 2022, But States Will Have Received $100 Billion to Cover New Medicaid Costs and Provide Additional General Fiscal Relief Between 5.3 million and 14.2 million low-income people could lose Medicaid coverage following the end of the public…

Fiscal and Enrollment Implications of Medicaid Continuous Coverage Requirement During and After the PHE Ends

This analysis projects enrollment growth through the end of FY 2022. It examines how much of the enrollment growth can be attributed to baseline, or expected enrollment increases without the pandemic, and how much to the MOE continuous enrollment requirement during the PHE. We explore the costs tied to MOE enrollment growth, estimate how much fiscal relief was provided to states through the enhanced FMAP, and describe scenarios for enrollment going forward.

Unwinding the PHE: What We Can Learn From Pre-Pandemic Enrollment Patterns

This brief examines typical enrollment patterns for Medicaid and CHIP and uses 2018 Medicaid claims data to gain insight into the effects of the continuous enrollment requirements by eligibility group. Roughly 2% of Medicaid enrollees come on or leave the program in an average month, although there is variation across eligibility groups. A policy to require continuous enrollment would result in sharp reductions in monthly disenrollment rates and would also reduce monthly enrollment rates due to reductions in churn.

Medicaid Spending and Enrollment: Updated for FY 2022 and Looking Ahead to FY 2023

In February 2022, the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) and Health Management Associates (HMA) fielded a rapid, mini-survey of Medicaid directors in all 50 states and the District of Columbia as a follow-up to the annual Medicaid Budget Survey conducted in summer 2021. This brief explores Medicaid enrollment and spending growth estimates for FY 2022 and projections for FY 2023, as reported by state Medicaid directors.

How Many Medicaid Enrollees Moved In 2020 And What Are The Implications For Unwinding the Public Health Emergency?

Once states resume redeterminations and disenrollments at the end of the public health emergency (PHE), Medicaid enrollees who moved within a state during the pandemic but are still eligible for coverage are at increased risk of being disenrolled if their contact information is out of date. We analyzed federal survey data for 2020 and found that roughly 1 in 10 Medicaid non-elderly enrollees (9%) moved in-state in 2020. A much smaller share, just 1%, moved to a different state in the U.S. Individuals that move within state may continue to be eligible for Medicaid, while a move out of state would make them no longer eligible for Medicaid coverage in their previous residence. States can take a number of actions to update enrollees’ addresses and other contact information to minimize coverage gaps and losses for eligible individuals after the end of the PHE, particularly for individuals who may have moved within a state.
