Millions of Americans are expected to lose their Medicaid-related health coverage due to the continuous enrollment requirement for Medicaid, which ended on March 31, 2023. This will be a disruptive, stressful time for our members and your patients affected by this change.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE) on January 31, 2020. Income eligibility requirements for Medicaid were waived, to help millions of Americans who lost their employer-sponsored health insurance.
In December 2022, Congress passed its year-end omnibus spending bill, which delinked the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement from the PHE, establishing the date of April 1, 2023, for resuming Medicaid redetermination. As states begin reviewing eligibility requirements for Medicaid, many current recipients will be disenrolled.
