Thousands Shift to Medicaid and ACA Exchanges Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

States that have reported Medicaid enrollment data for the second quarter of 2020 saw an average increase of 3.1% from March to June 2020, as shutdowns tied to the pandemic led to the highest unemployment rate seen in the U.S. since the Great Depression. Meanwhile, CMS reported that about 487,000 people gained coverage in states using the HealthCare.gov platform — via the exchange’s existing special enrollment period for people who lose job-based health insurance — between Dec. 15, 2019 and May 2020, up 46% compared with the same time period last year.
