Supporting Afghan Evacuees in Accessing Health Coverage
Julie Bataille, GMMB
State Health and Value Strategies has created a flyer for states to customize to share information regarding health coverage with Afghan evacuees recently re-settled or in the process of being re-settled in their state. The flyer has been translated into commonly used Afghan languages of Dari and Pashto. The flyer has been updated as of March 16, 2022 to align with an updated CMS factsheet.
State Health and Value Strategies also hosted a webinar State Strategies to Support Afghan Evacuees in Accessing Health Coverage which provided an overview of eligibility standards for evacuees and strategies that states can deploy to expeditiously enroll people into health coverage in order to access care.
