One in four uninsured eligible for aid but not enrolled
One in four Americans who don’t have health coverage are eligible for Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program but aren’t enrolled, according to a report from the National Institute for Health Care Management Foundation. The lack of enrollment was due to being unaware of the programs, not knowing how to enroll, fear of being linked with a publicly financed program, and the difficulty of staying enrolled, the report said.
