Medicaid disenrollment patterns among children coming into contact with child welfare agencies.
The authors examined retention of Medicaid coverage over time for children in the child welfare system. Using Medicaid claims files from 36 states, they found that half retained Medicaid coverage across 4 years of follow up, with most disenrollments happening in year 4. They recommend finding ways to promote entry of child welfare-involved children into health insurance coverage in order to assure services.
