To provide more rapid insight into the impact of COVID-19 on insurance coverage in the Commonwealth, CHIA is now producing monthly enrollment data summaries by key market sectors. This new report series is in addition to CHIA’s regular biannual Enrollment Trends reports.
This month’s publication includes enrollment figures through May 2020. CHIA intends to continue reporting on Massachusetts insurance coverage on a monthly basis as the impact of COVID-19 is further felt across insurance categories and market sectors.
Additionally, twice a year, CHIA updates its analysis of Massachusetts health insurance enrollment trends for the most recent trailing two-year period to give researchers and policymakers insight into the market. Approximately 6.4 million Massachusetts residents have health insurance coverage, where coverage is defined by unique Massachusetts residents with primary, medical membership in the 14 largest commercial payers, MassHealth (Medicaid), or Medicare.
Enrollment measures are also reported in CHIA's Annual Report on the Performance of the Massachusetts Health Care System.
