Medicaid (MA) and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) will reach nearly 95 million enrollees ahead of the end of continuous enrollment on March 31.
A new issue brief from the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) evaluates the ways continuous enrollment in the Medicaid and CHIP programs affected health insurance coverage across the U.S. The KFF report follows other research indicating that many Medicaid-enrolled families are unaware of the upcoming coverage change.
Here’s what you need to know.
To ensure that patients and families covered by MA and CHIP continue to have health care coverage, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS)—in partnership with provider organizations, including HAP—has developed resources to help providers share important information with patients.
DHS’s stakeholder toolkit includes printable education materials, scripts for conversations with patients, and digital assets, such as social media posts and website graphics.
The toolkit is available online.
