A large number of Medicaid enrollees, especially seniors, say their health plan has not reached out about how to renew coverage amid redeterminations, according to a new survey.
The survey was conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of digital engagement platform Icario from July 18 to 20. The results were published July 31 and include responses from 957 Medicaid enrollees over 18.
Among all respondents, 35 percent said their health plan has not reached out about renewing coverage, and 55 percent of enrollees 65 and older said the same.
Among those that have heard from their health plan, 93 percent said they received appropriate information and the resources needed to complete the renewal process.
As of July 27, at least 3.79 million people have been disenrolled from Medicaid through the redeterminations process, according to KFF. Of those disenrolled, 73 percent are due to procedural reasons, rather than being determined ineligible for the program.
