Minnesota July Unwinding Data

The Minnesota Department of Human Services announced that nearly 50,000 Minnesotans took action to renew their Medicaid or MinnesotaCare (the state’s basic health program) coverage in the state’s first group to renew coverage since the COVID-19 pandemic. Coverage was extended until the fall for 10,000 enrollees who get their coverage based on having a disability, being blind or being aged 65 years or older as part of the state’s mitigation plan with CMS. Medicaid coverage ended for about 5,600 people who submitted forms and were found ineligible and for about 32,600 people whose status is unknown.
