Sources & Notes

Source: MACPAC 2016 analysis of MSIS data as of December 2015

Notes: Data from fiscal year 2013. Enrollment numbers generally include individuals ever enrolled in Medicaid-financed coverage during the year, even if for a single month; however, in the event individuals were also enrolled in CHIP-financed Medicaid coverage (i.e., Medicaid-expansion CHIP) during the year, they are excluded if their most recent enrollment month was in Medicaid-expansion CHIP. Numbers exclude individuals enrolled only in Medicaid-expansion CHIP during the year and enrollees in the territories. Due to the unavailability of several states’ Medicaid Statistical Information System (MSIS) Annual Person Summary (APS) data for FY 2013, the source used in prior editions of this table, MACPAC calculated enrollment from the full MSIS data files that are used to create the APS files.
Children and adults under age 65 who qualify for Medicaid on the basis of disability are included in the disabled category. About 746,000 enrollees age 65 and older are identified in the data as disabled; given that disability is not an eligibility pathway for individuals age 65 and older, MACPAC recodes these enrollees as aged.
