As of January, only 27 states had a plan for how they will prioritize Medicaid eligibility and renewal actions when the continuous enrollment requirement ends after the COVID-19 public health emergency, according to a survey released yesterday by the Kaiser Family Foundation. States receiving enhanced federal funding under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act must provide continuous coverage for Medicaid enrollees until the end of the quarter in which the public health emergency ends. Among states with plans in place in January, 11 expected to prioritize enrollees who no longer appear eligible, nine to conduct renewals based on an individual’s annual renewal month and seven to take a hybrid approach.
