Promoting Continuity of Coverage and Care for Children During Unwinding and Beyond

On Thursday, January 18, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar to discuss the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) recently released suite of Medicaid unwinding-related guidance that includes a focus on ensuring eligible children maintain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) coverage. The resources offer strategies for states to prioritize coverage retention for eligible children now and in the post-unwinding era. During the webinar, experts from Manatt Health reviewed high-value strategies outlined in CMS’ guidance that states can implement to promote continuity of coverage for children and discussed key considerations for state policymakers.
