A newly published report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation finds that most US adults with a family member on Medicaid are unaware of impending eligibility redeterminations. The redeterminations are set to hit after the COVID-19 public health emergency is ended by the federal government. Many current Medicaid recipients are at risk of losing coverage.
According to Robert King, “The findings spotlight the problem states have as they continue to prepare for the end of the PHE, which currently runs through January. The Department of Health and Human Services has promised to give stakeholders a 60-day notice when the PHE will not be renewed for another 90-day period, with such a deadline passing earlier this month. This means the PHE will likely be in place through April.”
