In December, Congress passed the Consolidated Appropriation’s Act of 2023 which included a glidepath to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the enhanced federal funding that was conditioned on states providing continuous Medicaid coverage. Under the law, states can begin Medicaid disenrollment April 1, prior to the end of the PHE. The enhanced funding, which will phase down quarterly beginning April 1 through the end of the year, will continue so long as states abide by certain guardrails and procedures.

This webinar, Unwinding of COVID Medicaid Continuous Coverage Requirements—What Advocates for Older Adults Need to Know, will provide advocates with information about the Medicaid unwinding process, including key dates and specific challenges individuals dually eligible for Medicare and Medicaid may encounter during this transition. Presenters will identify steps that advocates can take with their states, partners, and clients to address these challenges and minimize coverage disruptions.
