Medicaid Enrollment Continues to Drop

Nationwide, millions of Medicaid beneficiaries are being disenrolled with many losing coverage because of missing or incorrect paperwork. Nearly 5.5 million people nationally are believed to have been disenrolled with at least 1 million of those being children. The Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University estimates that nearly half of people disenrolled still meet the eligibility criteria. In Pennsylvania, Medicaid enrollment has declined by 3% or 111,646 beneficiaries since April. Of the 3,596,759 enrollees, 2,172,041, or 60% are adults, and 1,424,718, or 40% are children.
