2020 Enrollment Data Demonstrates Importance of Medicaid

Between March and November 2020, over 700,000 new enrollees turned to Medicaid for health coverage due to the economic downturn associated with the Coronavirus pandemic.  A new publication by Medicaid Matters demonstrates that Medicaid did what it was intended to do and served as the social safety net people needed when they lost employer-based coverage and/or their income.

The new publication includes the voice of Jacqueline Rodriguez of New York City who relies on Medicaid for her two children who have hemophilia.

The new publication is available here.
