The Medicaid continuous enrollment provision, which had protected against disenrollments since March 2020, came to an end on March 31, 2023. It was a key growth factor for enrollment, reaching 95 million within that three-year period. As states now proceed with the unwinding of this provision over the next 12 months, they’ll be reassessing the eligibility of all Medicaid enrollees and disenrolling those who are no longer eligible, or who are unable to complete the renewal process. During this unwinding period, millions of people are expected to lose their Medicaid coverage.
