Louisiana

I've once again relaunched my project from last fall to track Medicaid enrollment (both standard and expansion alike) on a monthly basis for every state dating back to the ACA being signed into law.

For the various enrollment data, I'm using data from Medicaid.gov's Medicaid Enrollment Data Collected Through MBES reports. Unfortunately, they've only published enrollment data through December 2020. In some states I've been able to get more recent enrollment data from state websites and other sources.

Today I'm presenting Louisiana. For enrollment data from January 2021 on, I'm relying on adjusted estimates based on raw data from the Louisiana Health Dept.

Today I'm presenting The Big One: California. For enrollment data from January 2021 on, I'm relying on adjusted estimates based on raw data from the CA Dept. of Health Care Services. I actually ran the numbers for California a month ago, but the MBES data has been updated and I've started breaking out expansion enrollment between "previously eligible" and "newly eligible" with a different graph format, so I decided to re-do CA as well.

Connect for Health Colorado Hits Historic Enrollment Milestone for 2021 Plan Year

  • Thousands More Coloradans Have Health Coverage Thanks to Extended Enrollment Window and New, Federal Law

DENVER – As of Monday, June 7, 200,119 Coloradans have signed up for a plan that provides coverage this year through Connect for Health Colorado, the state’s official health insurance marketplace.
