Close to 35,000 Maryland residents lost access to Medicaid as the state returned to checking eligibility for the public health insurance program, after a COVID-era requirement to keep recipients continuously enrolled expired May 31.

They are among millions of others who are losing Medicaid coverage, meant for low-income families and individuals, nationwide.
