In the second month of the yearlong effort to renew Medicaid coverage for 1.8 million Marylanders, 17,000 more people have lost their health insurance for “procedural” reasons. This brings the total of avoidable coverage losses to 42,000 over two months. Of the 139,000 people up for renewal in June, 12% lost insurance for preventable reasons, meaning they either did not receive or understand renewal notices or did not provide requested documents in time.
