State Strategies for Sequencing Enrollee Communications When Medicaid Continuous Coverage Ends

This expert perspective focuses on strengthening communications to enrollees once the federal public health emergency is lifted and the continuous enrollment requirement ends to ensure that those who are eligible maintain their coverage, and those who are ineligible are transitioned to a Marketplace plan or other insurance. The intention is to help states develop a timeline within their communications plans to coordinate and sequence outreach to these consumer groups. Critical in this effort to reduce churn will be effective coordination with stakeholders. This expert perspective outlines outreach strategies and tactics state Medicaid agencies and State-Based Marketplaces can implement to effectively inform enrollees what is happening and what actions they may need to take to stay insured.
