States report Medicaid eligibility discrepancies

Despite Medicaid enrollment topping 6 million Americans, some states are quietly removing ineligible individuals and questioning how many enrollees actually meet Medicaid requirements, reports Forbes.

And in Texas, officials are finding major inaccuracies based on files received from the federal government--many eligible applicants in Texas don't even live in the state or are already enrolled in the program.
