Medicaid Enrollment Gaps, 2005 to 2007
AbstractThis report uses Medicaid administrative records to investigate discontinuities in Medicaid enrollment by eligibility group and state from January 2005 through December 2007. Nearly half of those enrolled in Medicaid in January 2005 and eligible for full benefits in all their months of enrollment remained enrolled through the end of 2007, but more than one-fifth disenrolled and then reenrolled at least once. Brief interruptionsâ€”one or two months in lengthâ€”accounted for more than one-third of all gaps in enrollment that started in 2005 or 2006 among established enrollees with full benefits. Brief gaps were more common among new enrollees than among established enrollees, accounting for nearly 45 percent of all breaks in service.
