Abstract Gaps in Medicaid coverage have been examined from a number of perspectives in studies using both Medicaid enrollment data and household survey data. Ellwood and Irvin (2000) analyzed Medicaid enrollment patterns of children and their parents in five states in 1995 and documented the extent of turnover in the Medicaid caseload. During the year, 1.5 million children and nearly 1 million adults disenrolled, yet monthly enrollment declined by only 180,000. The study also called attention to the role of churninginterruptions in enrollment due to disenrollment then re-enrollmentin caseload turnover.
