Medicaid HMO enrollment up

Call it a result of the dragging economy: More Medicaid beneficiaries are joining Medicaid HMOs, which now cover nearly 64 percent of Medicaid managed care members.

Of the 49.5 million Medicaid recipients nationally, 35.2 million (71.2 percent) were enrolled in some kind of Medicaid managed care plan in 2009.
