Yesterday, the Kaiser Family Foundation released a new issue brief on the remaining uninsured population who are eligible for Medicaid and CHIP. The report estimates that 8.8 million people are uninsured but would be eligible for these programs if they would apply. That is approximately 27% of the remaining uninsured population in the country. The report breaks down how the populations differ in expansion v. non-expansion states. It also discusses the policy implications for such a high number of people remaining uninsured. To download the issue brief, which also includes state-by-state data, click here.
