A Civil Rights and health Equity Crisis
Termination rates are extremely high — far outpacing pre-Medicaid disenrollment projections. As of October 2023, six months after the end of the Public Health Emergency, more than 10 million people have lost Medicaid coverage.
- 71% of all people disenrolled had their coverage terminated for "red tape" or procedural reasons like missing paperwork or system errors. Many of those disenrolled may still be eligible for coverage.
- At least 54% of those terminated from Medicaid are from communities of color.
- Over 2 million children, across 20 reporting states, are included in this staggering figure.
