CMS published preliminary state-reported information about the ability of states’ systems to conduct automatic renewals, otherwise known as ex parte renewals, at the individual level. As of September 21, 23 states and territories attested to correctly conducting ex parte renewals at the individual level, while 30 states and territories indicated they are not doing so or are still working to reinstate affected individuals.
