Datapoint: Most Medicaid Beneficiaries Aren’t Aware of Redeterminations
A recent survey from the Urban Institute found that more than 6 in 10 adults in Medicaid-enrolled families were not aware of the resumption of Medicaid eligibility redeterminations, a rate that has not changed much since June 2022. Medicaid rolls have skyrocketed since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and states have been prohibited from conducting regular Medicaid eligibility checks throughout the public health emergency. As of February 2023, 94.6 million people receive full Medicaid or CHIP benefits in the U.S.
