Health Plans Welcome CMS Moves to Curtail Medicaid Coverage Losses

As it marked the 14th anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, the Biden administration in recent days announced several new steps that aim to build on the Medicaid coverage gains achieved by the ACA — and reduce the coverage losses due to Medicaid redeterminations.

On March 27, CMS finalized a rule that aims to streamline eligibility and enrollment processes for Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) beneficiaries. Among other provisions, the rule prohibits states from conducting coverage eligibility renewals any more frequently than 12 months apart.
