Letter to U.S. Governors from HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra on Medicaid Redeterminations

HHS Secretary Becerra issued a letter to governors in response to early state data on Medicaid redetermination outcomes. The letter expresses concern related to high rates of disenrollments for procedural reasons as well as coverage loss among children, and encourages states to redouble efforts to (1) leverage additional, temporary flexibilities to support unwinding; and (2) partner with stakeholders to protect against inappropriate coverage loss.
