New research finds that two-thirds of children expected to lose Medicaid coverage at the end of the public health emergency are from communities of color. Further, more than one out of every 10 children in those communities are likely to have their coverage terminated, in what will probably be the greatest loss of coverage in Medicaid’s history.
In Federal and State Action is Needed to Protect Children’s Health Care, Especially in Communities of Color, researcher Stan Dorn takes a deep dive into how the upcoming expiration of continuous coverage requirements at the end of the public health emergency will directly impact the 6.7 million children who are likely to lose Medicaid — including who they are, the states where they live, and critically, what federal and state governments can do to prevent eligible children and families from losing health care.
