News Briefs: Idaho Completes Medicaid Redeterminations

Idaho is the first state to complete its Medicaid eligibility redeterminations process, the state’s Medicaid agency announced on Sept. 8. The state “processed 153,196 renewals, and 31,900 were determined eligible, and 121,296 were ineligible,” according to a post from the state’s Dept. of Health and Welfare (DEW). DEW added that the resumption of redeterminations is “a large and important undertaking that DEW has taken very seriously.” To handle redeterminations, “we committed more than 300 eligibility staff to the effort and an additional 42 staff from our call center.” The news is somewhat surprising, as Idaho paused redeterminations earlier this year due to what KFF termed “technical difficulties.” CMS has warned state Medicaid agencies not to disenroll Medicaid members too quickly.
