On March 16, the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) issued a new 50-state survey analyzing how states are planning for the end of the continuous enrollment requirement in Medicaid after the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency expires. The survey finds that many state Medicaid programs still have not made key decisions about how to handle the resumption of eligibility redeterminations that will lead to the disenrollment of people who are no longer eligible and those who are eligible but do not complete renewal paperwork. Only 27 states have said they had a plan for how they will prioritize outstanding eligibility and renewal actions.
