Alabama’s Medicaid Enrollment Tops 1 Million

Alabama Medicaid’s monthly enrollment topped 1 million for the first time in February 2014, boosted largely by the federally-required transfer of children from the state’s All Kids program and changes in how Medicaid eligibility is determined. The milestone increase also reflects the first enrollment of individuals who applied for coverage through the federal marketplace under the Affordable Care Act. Much of the initial increase – 93 percent – was due to the addition of more than 23,000 children in January who were required to transfer to Medicaid from the state’s Children’s Health Insurance Program.
