Medicaid disenrollment rates by state

The Medicaid disenrollment rate for reporting states as of Sept. 8 ranges from 72 percent in Texas to 9 percent in Michigan, according to KFF

KFF said there is a wide variation in disenrollment rates across states, which is likely explained by differences in who states are targeting with early renewals as well as differences in renewal policies and system capacities. 

Some states, such as Texas and South Carolina, targeted people early in the unwinding period that they thought were no longer eligible or who did not respond to renewal requests during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to KFF. Other states are conducting renewals based on an individual renewal date. Some states adopted policies that promote continued coverage among those who remain eligible and have automated eligibility systems that can more easily and accurately process renewals.
