Medicaid, CHIP enrollment hits 10.1 million

February 01, 2015

The number of people enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP hit 10.1 million as of November, a 17.5% increase over the same time period last year. Officials touted the numbers as evidence the ACA's Medicaid expansion is working in states that have adopted it. The Obama administration is working to encourage governors that have not accepted the Medicaid expansion to tailor the policy to their states in 2015. Indiana became the latest state to expand Medicaid on Jan. 27 and will require that enrollees make small contributions to their health insurance premiums.
