Investigating the Extent of Churning in Medicaid Coverage and the Costs of Reenrollment


For this project, a research team at the New York Academy of Medicine will analyze data from selected states on the cycling of children on and off Medicaid coverage. The investigation will focus on the frequency and duration of gaps in coverage and the amount spent by states and health plans to reenroll families who lost coverage due to administrative barriers. Differences among states' coverage eligibility rules will enable project staff to compare the effects of various policies, such as income verification and six-month versus 12-month eligibility periods. This project complements a Georgetown University grant (see above) to analyze the causes and consequences of churning and develop solutions.
