Medicaid Statistics



Since its creation in 1965, Medicaid has become the largest source of medical and health-related services for U.S. Americans with a low income and limited resources. In 2015, Medicaid’s share of total U.S. health care spending amounted to almost 17 percent. The program is funded by both federal and state governments. As the percentage of people under Medicaid was growing during the last decade, Medicaid spending was increasing too.

  • Medicaid is a lifeline for most people with significant disabilities who have greater medical needs and require assistance with daily living activities such as getting dressed, taking medication, preparing meals and managing money.
  • In 2010, 22% of the population was at some point enrolled in the Medicaid program. Medicaid is the nation’s primary health insurance program and currently covers 60 million low-income Americans.
  • While an unprecedented 6 million people have gained Medicaid coverage since September 2013, mostly as a result of the Affordable Care Act, more than 1.7 million more are still waiting for their applications to be processed — with some stuck in limbo for as long as eight months, according to officials in 15 large states.
  • According to estimates of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), approximately 69 million people were enrolled in Medicaid in 2015.
  • Due to the considerable increase in Medicaid applicants, it is inevitable to avoid an increase in Medicaid pending cases. This creates a bottleneck in the process and therefore demands the need for well prepared and complete Medicaid applications.
