Medicaid Enrollment Rises in PA

Medicaid enrollment among adults in Pennsylvania was up 13 percent in December over the previous December and up 14 percent in January over the previous January for adults, children, pregnant women, the elderly, and disabled individuals.

The increase has been driven by rising COVID-19 pandemic-related unemployment that has cost many people their health insurance along with their jobs.

Learn more about the rising numbers – and the people behind them – in the Philadelphia Inquirer story “Medicaid enrollment soars as Americans lose jobs to pandemic: ‘I never thought I’d experience this.’”
