The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services May 9 announced an extension of unwinding flexibilities to support state efforts to protect the continuity of coverage in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program. States can continue to use certain waiver authorities to streamline eligibility redeterminations until June 30, 2025, adding a year to the previous deadline of June 2024. CMS said the extension for coverage renewals allows states to shift resources to help reduce processing times for applications.
