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.

Data Notes

Enrollment varies from one month to the next. The average monthly enrollment was used to compute these percentages.   Pre-ACA Average Monthly Medicaid/CHIP Enrollment: The average number of individuals enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP for each month during the July-September, 2013 period using an average of enrollment numbers submitted by the states for each month in this period. Post-ACA Medicaid/CHIP Monthly Enrollment: The total unduplicated number of individuals enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP as of the last day of each reporting period, including those with retroactive, conditional, and presumptive eligibility. This indicator is a point-in-time count of total program enrollment, and is not solely a count of those newly enrolled during the reporting period. This number includes only those individuals who were eligible for comprehensive benefits (e.g., emergency Medicaid, family planning-only coverage and limited benefit dual eligible individuals are excluded). Annual Medicaid enrollment percentages were calculated using the July 1st population estimates for the same calendar year.
