The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services released a FAQ regarding Consolidated Appropriations Act changes for states redetermining Medicaid enrollee eligibility due to the March 31 end of the COVID-19 pandemic’s continuous enrollment requirement. Key topics, among others, include the CAA returned mail condition for states claiming the increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage; reestablishment of premiums in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program; renewal requirements for individuals who receive Social Security income; and Medicaid and CHIP agency capacity to share beneficiary data with enrolled providers to support renewals.
