Abstract The Medicaid program currently provides health coverage to over 60 million aged, disabled, adult, and child enrollees in the United States. Provisions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are expected to increase the number of enrollees by more than 16 million in 2014, to a total of over 76 million, or about 25 percent of the U.S. population (Kaiser Family Foundation 2010). Individuals eligible for Medicaid may lose eligibility for various reasons, such as changes in income, categorical factors, and movement from state to state. Earlier research has shown that either temporary or permanent loss of eligibility may have important consequences for the enrolled individual (in terms of continuity of care, unmet need, and health outcomes) and for the public at large (tax burden attributable to program costs). In this paper, we use data from a new sourceadministrative data derived from Medicaid Analytic eXtract (MAX) enrollment records that have been unduplicated and linked over timeto examine Medicaid enrollee migration across states and the possibility of gaps in enrollment as a result of such migration from 2005 through 2007.
