Complete Health Indicator Report of Medicaid Enrollment

Definition

The monthly percentage of the population enrolled in Medicaid, averaged over the months in the measurement period.

Numerator

Monthly number of Medicaid cases, averaged over the months in the measurement period.

Denominator

Total population.

Why Is This Important?

Medicaid provides health coverage for those New Mexicans living below a certain percentage of the federal poverty level, and provides coverage for almost half of New Mexico's children. People with health coverage are more likely to receive preventive medical care and are consequently less likely to suffer from preventable illnesses and complications of those illnesses.
