Medicaid and CHIP enrollees number May 2019, by state

In January 2014 the U.S. federal government offered a Medicaid expansion among all U.S. states. Despite the offer of expansion, not all states adopted the program equally. The number of enrollees in Medicaid/CHIP programs varies significantly between the states. As of 2019 New York had the highest number of enrollees with 6.5 million monthly enrollees on average. Wyoming had the lowest number of employees with just under 55 thousand people enrolled in the program.
