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.
Basic Health Plan: Is it an option for your State?
Manatt Health Solutions – Deborah Bachrach and Melinda Dutton
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) provides subsidized coverage options for individuals up to 400 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. States are responsible in large part for implementing the coverage expansions, and the ACA provides states the option to set up a Basic Health Plan (BHP) for individuals between the Medicaid expansion income limit (138 percent) and 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Level. This webinar by Manatt Health Solutions was designed to educate and aid states in analyzing and making a decision whether to pursue the BHP option as part of their broader ACA implementation strategy. The slides provide an overview of the statutory requirements, followed by a step-by-step analysis of the financial and operational issues, as well as the impact on delivery systems and state exchanges.
