State officials are urging Pennsylvanians to get ready for the end of continuous enrollment in the Medicaid program during April.
The year-end spending bill from Congress included a provision ending Medicaid’s continuous enrollment after March 31. The continuous enrollment provision helped ensure access to insurance coverage during the pandemic. The upcoming expiration date means that Pennsylvania will resume its normal process to ensure beneficiaries qualify for the program.
State officials this week are urging anyone enrolled in Pennsylvania’s Medicaid program to make sure their contact information is correct so they can receive timely updates about their benefits. The effort is part of a broader outreach program to alert the public about the end of continuous enrollment.
“Recent federal law changes Medicaid renewal guidelines, and we need everyone to be aware of those and know what they need to do to stay covered,” said Val Arkoosh, acting secretary for the Department of Human Services (DHS).
Additional information about the end of continuous Medicaid enrollment is available online.
