As the unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement continues, both states and the federal government are tracking and monitoring the impacts of the resumption of eligibility redeterminations and disenrollments. Given the time-lags and caveats of CMS data, many states are publishing their own state data dashboards. To date, 46 states (including the District of Columbia) have released unwinding data in either an interactive dashboard or static pdf format, or are making public their required CMS Monthly Unwinding Data reports. This expert perspective includes an interactive map with links to state reporting, as well as a table tracking the unwinding indicators and disaggregated data that states are reporting on. SHVS will continue to update this EP as more states publish their unwinding data.
Addressing Health-Related Social Needs Through Medicaid Managed Care
Erin Campbell, Mary Beth Dyer, and Erin Taylor, Bailit Health
States are using a variety of approaches to measure and incentivize Medicaid managed care (MMC) entities to address unmet social needs that can contribute to poor health outcomes, lower quality care, and higher medical expenditures. This toolkit identifies examples of approaches states are taking through their MMC programs to address health-related social needs. States interested in implementing specific strategies related to social determinants of health (SDOH) can use this toolkit to develop managed care procurements or update and operationalize key contract provisions. The toolkit does not include all state MMC procurement questions or contract language related to addressing enrollees’ SDOH needs, but instead represents a curated list of specific examples from 16 profiled states. This toolkit was co-funded by the Health Foundation of South Florida.
