The Georgia Pathways to Coverage program, which expands Medicaid eligibility but requires beneficiaries to meet a work requirement, has enrolled just 1,343 people three months after its launch, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The state’s Dept. of Community Health projected that the program could eventually enroll up to 100,000 people, but the administrative burden of proving that would-be Medicaid recipients are either working, volunteering, enrolled in school, or otherwise complying with the Pathways to Coverage requirements appear to be discouraging signups, the article noted. Georgia currently enrolls about 77% of its 2.91 million Medicaid members in managed care plans, offered by Centene Corp., Elevance Health and CareSource.
