States’ Reporting of Medicaid Unwinding Reinstatement Data

During the unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement there has been a strong focus on monitoring the impacts of eligibility redeterminations. A review of public unwinding data identified nine states that are voluntarily reporting Medicaid reinstatement data—including reinstatements as a result of CMS guidance on conducting ex parte at the individual level, as a result of fair hearing cases, or re-enrollment into Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program within the 90-day reconsideration period. This expert perspective reviews current state reporting of reinstatement data and provides recommendations for the reporting of such data.
