CMS Releases Third Batch of State-Reported Unwinding Data, With New Data on CHIP and Transitions to Marketplace Coverage

On September 29, the Centers and Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) published a new release of state-reported Medicaid unwinding data through its Unwinding and Returning to Regular Operations after COVID-19 landing page. Like previous releases of data, CMS includes national and state-specific metrics pertaining to Medicaid and CHIP eligibility renewal outcomes and total enrollment in June (and preliminary data for July). This month, as part of its timeline of planned data releases, CMS newly shared more comprehensive data on Marketplace enrollment and transitions—including cumulative enrollment data between April and June for HealthCare.gov, State-Based Marketplaces, and the Basic Health Programs—and separate CHIP enrollment in April 2023.
