News Briefs: CMS Extends Medicaid Redetermination Deadline

CMS on May 9 said it would allow states to complete their Medicaid eligibility redeterminations through June 30, 2025. The agency previously required states to finish the “unwinding” process by the end of 2024. During COVID-19, states were required to keep people enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance program until the public health emergency ended, but starting last April, states were allowed to resume their eligibility checks for Medicaid coverage. As of May 10, states and Washington, D.C., reported they had completed about three-quarters of their eligibility decisions, according to KFF. About 48.1 million people had their coverage renewed, while 21.9 million people were disenrolled and 24 million people had not found out about their status. KFF reported that 69% of people who were disenrolled had their coverage terminated for procedural reasons.
