The Consolidated Appropriations Act (“Omnibus”) passed in December 2022 established an end date for certain Medicaid-related provisions that were in effect over the course of the COVID-19 public health emergency. Most notably for patient populations covered by Medicaid, the “continuous coverage” requirement will end on March 31. This means that state Medicaid agencies may resume their eligibility determinations and begin disenrolling beneficiaries from the program on April 1. It is predicted that many people – including children – will lose Medicaid coverage despite their ongoing eligibility for the program. Current Medicaid and CHIP beneficiaries are urged to make sure their contact information is up-to-date with their state Medicaid offices. Additionally, on January 30, 2023, the Biden Administration announced its intent to end the public health emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic effective May 11. Additional provider-focused information will be shared soon. In the meantime, please feel free to read more from CMS (Medicaid.gov/Unwinding), the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families, and the Kaiser Family Foundation.
