Families who are no longer eligible for Medicaid may still be eligible for other types of free or low-cost coverage.
ACCESSNebraska : The Department of Health and Human Services administers and manages eligibility for Medicaid and Economic Assistance programs through ACCESSNebraska.
From AAP President Sandy Chung, MD, FAAP:
“…A change is coming to Medicaid coverage: a policy that kept millions of children continuously enrolled in Medicaid during the COVID-19 public health emergency will end on March 31.
What can you do?
Families who are no longer eligible for Medicaid may lose their coverage, but they may still be eligible for other types of free or low-cost coverage. This process of redetermining the eligibility of everyone enrolled in Medicaid is being called the “unwinding.”
When is this change actually happening?
Over the next 14 months, states must check whether every person currently enrolled in Medicaid is still eligible, then either renew or terminate that person’s coverage. Every state decides their own timeline for eligibility redeterminations; while some will come now, others won’t get them for months. April 1 is the first day that states may begin disenrolling individuals who are no longer eligible for Medicaid. At least five states are already sending renewal applications, and more states will begin sending notices and renewal applications in April and May. I hope these resources help you prepare.”
