As of September 30, 2023 (3Q23), total Medicaid enrollment included nearly 85.8 million Americans, representing a year-over-year (YOY) decrease of over 2.2 million enrollees (-2.5%) since the same time the previous year (3Q22). This decrease in enrollment is primarily due to the conclusion of the public health emergency (PHE) on March 31, 2023, when many state health departments initiated “unwinding” plans of renewals and redetermination. When just comparing 3Q23 to 2Q23, enrollment fell by almost 4 million (-4.4%).
With the public health emergency (PHE) and the federal government’s continuous Medicaid coverage requirement concluded, the renewals and redeterminations have had a tremendous impact on Medicaid enrollment across the nation. Evaluating market share in response to these changing laws and redeterminations will be an important measure of competitive positioning and health plan performance for insurers.
Mark Farrah Associates will continue to monitor enrollment across the country, using County Health CoverageTM and integrating highly relevant sources to provide reliable estimates of health insurance market share at these levels.
