Future Coverage Trends Are in Doubt as 16 million Medicaid Enrollees Have Been Dropped

Approximately 16 million Medicaid enrollees have been removed midway through the rollback of the continuous enrollment provision, leading to a 10 percent national decline in enrollment. The impact varies across states, with factors like potential ACA expansions, coverage gaps in non-expansion states, and extended coverage initiatives influencing future trends. Despite rising ACA Marketplace enrollment, it is unclear whether such rise fully offsets Medicaid losses, and data on reenrollment, transitions to employer coverage, or increased uninsured rates are currently limited.
