NAMD Unwinding Update: Different vantage points, shared goals

In a new National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) blog post, NAMD Executive Director Kate McEvoy discusses the current state of Medicaid unwinding and lifts up where priorities at all levels are aligned and what states are doing to innovate and course correct to improve the redetermination process for Medicaid members. McEvoy emphasizes that state and territory Medicaid staff are central to this effort and remain actively and dynamically at work. This includes learning from unwinding data and experience, issue spotting and responding to feedback from members and partners, and proactively collaborating with both federal partners and the myriad entities—managed care organizations, healthcare providers, community-based organizations, and advocates—that are essential to achieving the shared goal of coverage retention.
