Young Black Child at a Medical Check-up - Indoors

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.

View the toolkit below to learn how to take action on keeping eligible families covered in your own community.
