Medicaid, CHIP Enrollment Up 11.4% Since PPACA Rollout

About 6.7 million U.S. residents signed up for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program between September 2013 and May of this year, which represents an 11.4 percent increase over enrollment rates during the three-month period before the launch of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act's open enrollment period,  according to a recent report from CMS.

In states that expanded their Medicaid programs under the PPACA, enrollment in Medicaid and CHIP has increased an average of 17 percent since Oct. 1, 2013, while enrollment has only increased by 3 percent in states that have not expanded Medicaid.

The figures in report did not include data from Connecticut, Maine and North Dakota, as those states did not provide data to CMS.
