Medicaid and the Public Health Emergency

This session provided a brief update as part of MACPAC’s ongoing monitoring of the public health emergency (PHE). The Commission has been closely following the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and state preparations for unwinding the PHE continuous coverage requirement. In particular, the Commission is focused on the potential risk of eligible individuals inappropriately losing coverage as states resume redeterminations, as well as state administrative and system capacity to handle redeterminations.
