Medicaid & CHIP Re-enrollment Returns!

As the United States ends its COVID 19 public health emergency, the continuous enrollment provision is coming to an imminent end. Participants in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will need to re-enroll – especially those who signed up during the pandemic. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 5 to 14 million people may lose their coverage. While states should be sending out notifications, it’s recommended that you check with your local Medicaid or CHIP office to ensure your coverage is continued. The dates and resources below can help you navigate your way through these changes and ensure you keep your benefits.

National Health Council’s Dates to Keep in Mind

  • April 1, 2023: First possible day of terminations.

  • May 11, 2023: End of the public health emergency.

  • July 1, 2023: Last possible day for a state to begin Medicaid terminations.

  • December 31, 2023: FMAP (Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance) for Medicaid ends.

  • May 2024: Last possible month to finish redeterminations
