Access & Coverage
  • A new Kaiser Family Foundation analysis found that between 5.3 million and 14.2 million people could lose their health coverage when temporary pandemic-inspired reforms to Medicaid expire at the end of the public health emergency. The biggest losses are expected to be among adults who gained coverage through the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion, other adults eligible for reasons other than a disability, as well as children. The researchers project that Medicaid enrollment could grow 25 percent, or by 22.2 million people, from fiscal 2019 through 2022, mostly because of the pandemic-driven allowances. (Analysis here)
