MEDICAID UNWINDING TWITTER CHAT
If you missed it last week, we announced the release of our newest fact sheet on the unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement. You can also find this fact sheet along with other useful resources on the fact sheets page of our website.
To highlight this new fact sheet, we have also released a new Olli the NaviGator comic to show people what their options are if they lose their Medicaid coverage. You can see all of Olli’s adventures on our social media channels plus we have compiled all of Olli’s adventures on this NDNRC webpage.
If you want to learn more about the ending of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement, you can join us for a Twitter chat that we are cohosting with Young Invincibles entitled “Medicaid Unwinding: What Do You Need to Know?” This Twitter chat will occur on Thursday, April 20 at 3 PM ET. You can follow along on the AAHD and Young Invincibles Twitter accounts or by following the hashtag: #MindTheUnwind.
The Georgetown Center for Children and Families blog has a new blog post which examines what the data is showing about the unwinding of the Medicaid continuous coverage requirement. Last week, they had a blog post which examined what the early data suggested about disenrollment.
Many states have started the process of redeterminations and some are already terminating Medicaid enrollment, but timelines look different from state to state. If you’re wondering what the timeline looks like for your state, CMS released a list of key dates by state regarding their redeterminations (see our news item).
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.
As part of our partnership with Community Catalyst, we have a project which highlights opportunities for people with disabilities to get access to health coverage through Medicaid or the ACA marketplace. As part of this project, they have graphics like the one below which highlight using your coverage once you have it. These are available in the Community Catalyst Outreach Hub.
If you want to learn more about helping people transition from coverage to care, check out the fact sheet we released on the topic. As this is a fact sheet that is intended for consumers, we have versions available in English and Spanish.
Recently, we have highlighted a federal court decision in Texas which invalidated portions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) (see our news item). Health Affairs has a new blog post which discusses the implication of the decision.
Archives of our weekly updates are available on the NDNRC website.
