The unwinding related section 1902(e)(14) strategies newly available to Medicaid and CHIP agencies can provide significant relief to states facing pending eligibility and enrollment actions and processing delays, workforce and systems limitations, and other operational challenges. Ensuring eligible individuals do not lose coverage for procedural or administrative reasons and supporting those who are ineligible for Medicaid/CHIP transition to Marketplace coverage will be paramount for all states as they begin to resume normal operations when the federal public health emergency (PHE) ends. This expert perspective outlines the time-limited targeted enrollment flexibilities that CMS has availed to states through section 1902(e)(14) waiver authority and discusses considerations beyond the strategies described in federal guidance and supplemental resources.
Health Equity Resources
For too many of us, the prospects for good health are limited by where we live, how much money we make, or discrimination we face.
We all benefit when everyone has a fair shot at access to good jobs with fair pay, good schools, affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, and quality medical care. This is health equity—when we all have the basics to be as healthy as possible.
For wherever you are on your journey, State Health and Value Strategies (SHVS) developed this resource page to serve as an accessible one-stop source of health equity information for states.
