State Dashboards to Monitor the Unwinding of the Medicaid Continuous Coverage Requirement
The unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement represents the largest nationwide coverage transition since the Affordable Care Act, with significant health equity implications. Given the intense focus on coverage transitions during the unwinding, some states have initiated plans to publish a data dashboard to monitor progress. To date, five states—Iowa, Minnesota, Utah, Washington, and West Virginia—have publicly released some type of unwinding data (this includes states reporting unwinding data in both a dashboard and a static format, but not states with pre-existing enrollment dashboards that don’t specifically identify unwinding cohorts). SHADAC will update this expert perspective as additional dashboards go live.
