North Carolina: ACA Medicaid expansion nears 450K

Last month I noted that North Carolina's ACA Medicaid expansion initiative, which started in December 2023, had officially enrolled more than 400,000 of the estimated 600,000 NC residents eligible for the program.

I just checked on the official NC Dept. of Health & Human Services Medicaid expansion dashboard, and it says that as of May 3rd, expansion enrollment there was up to 447,498 people.

It will be interesting to see how close to that 600K estimate enrollment ends up being over the next year or so.
