The Impact of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Expiration on All Types of Health Coverage
Brief Dec-05-2022 | | 1-min read
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act’s continuous coverage requirement prevents state Medicaid agencies from disenrolling people during the COVID-19 public health emergency. However, when the declaration of the emergency expires—currently scheduled for May 2023—states will resume normal eligibility determinations. This could result in millions losing access to affordable health coverage through Medicaid.
State Medicaid officials and policymakers must continue to ensure that individuals currently enrolled in Medicaid are aware of the approaching end of the public health emergency, and that they have a plan to maintain or find new health coverage through their employer, the federal healthcare Marketplace, or Medicaid.
