DOH Issues New Resources on End of Continuous Medicaid Eligibility
In recent months, Medicaid eligibility renewals that were suspended during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency have resumed. In order to avoid unnecessary loss of health coverage due to eligibility paperwork, the Department of Health (DOH) has sought federal approval of various strategies to automate and streamline renewals and is raising awareness among Medicaid beneficiaries of the need to pay attention to renewal notices when they arrive.
Information about the renewal process is available in two sets of technical Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for providers, focusing on various eligibility categories, here and here. As previously reported here, DOH also hosted a webinar for nursing homes on the redetermination process and net available monthly income (NAMI).
Medicaid providers and aging services organizations can help to spread the word among the people they serve. To assist in these efforts, DOH has released a communications toolkit with information for consumers in various formats and languages.
