Colorado Medicaid Rolls Reach Record High

Listen
As of Nov. 2011, there were nearly 615,000 Colorado residents on Medicaid, the highest total Colorado's program has ever seen, according to a Denver Post report.

Colorado's current Medicaid beneficiary total is 57.7 percent higher than it was in Jan. 2007.


Sue Birch, director of Colorado's Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, said in the report it's unlikely the numbers will decline over the next few years due to population growth. The DHCPF anticipates a continued growing Medicaid caseload in the next 18 to 24 months.
