AAHD is pleased to announce the release of our newest fact sheet on the Medicaid unwinding.

Unwinding the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement has begun in many states, and in some states, people may have started losing their Medicaid eligibility. Over the last couple months we have been updating our “Medicaid Unwinding Resources” blog post which has links to various resources including our new Medicaid unwinding flyer and toolkits from organizations like Community Catalyst and Young Invincibles. Recently, we added a list of resources from the National Health Council and updated a link from the Kaiser Family Foundation.

These are available in the Community Catalyst Outreach Hub.
