Please join us on May 9th
at 3:00 p.m. for the virtual Flagler Cares Coalition meeting to learn more about Medicaid Unwinding.
State Experts will share information about the “Unwinding” process anticipated to begin this summer that could cause gaps in your client’s Medicaid coverage and CHIP (Florida KidCare) coverage.
In March 2020, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) temporarily waived certain Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) requirements and conditions. The easing of these rules helped prevent people with Medicaid and CHIP from losing their health coverage during the pandemic. However, states will soon be required to restart Medicaid and CHIP eligibility reviews. According to some estimates, when states resume these reviews, up to 15 million people could lose their current Medicaid or CHIP coverage through a process called “unwinding.”
Please join the virtual coalition meeting to learn more about this issue and to discuss strategies we can implement locally to help clients maintain their coverage or find health coverage if they are no longer eligible for Medicaid or CHIP.
