Datapoint: CMS Reinstates Medicaid Coverage for 500,000 People

CMS will reinstate coverage for approximately 500,000 Medicaid and CHIP enrollees after they were improperly disenrolled from the safety net insurance programs. According to CMS, on Aug. 30 the agency sent a letter to all states “requiring them to determine and report whether they have a systems issue that inappropriately disenrolls children and families, even when the state had information indicating that they remained eligible for Medicaid and CHIP coverage.” The agency said 30 states have reported that they are working through the “systems issue” behind the improper disenrollments and have paused procedural disenrollments for affected beneficiaries. There were 73.8 million Medicaid and CHIP enrollees at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, growing to 95.6 million by April 2023, when redeterminations began.
