The End of the Declared Public Health EmergencyWhat you need to stay covered.
The Public Health Emergency is coming to an end. Many things will feel familiar, but you should be aware of changes.
Changes on the Horizon
Did you hear? The Public Health Emergency declared in March of 2020 is ending. This means an end to continuous coverage.
State Medicaid programs are working with Federal partners to make sure everyone is ready for the switchover!
Standard eligibility renewal and disenrollment processing will return to the way things were before that emergency was declared.
What’s Continuous Coverage?
Medicaid continuous coverage provisions have been in place for nearly three years! In March of 2020, coinciding with the proliferation of COVID-19, a Public Health Emergency was declared. The Medicaid Continuous Coverage Provisions have been in place since.
This program was designed to keep everyone with Medicaid covered during the Public Health Emergency. Now that it’s over, you’ll need to make sure you are enrolled.
States are Planning
So that recipients of Medicaid don’t go without coverage, state plans have been working to make sure everyone knows about the impending changes.
The American Rescue Act, and Inflation Reduction Act should allow folks across the country to find plans at resonable rates as a large percentage of people qualify for financial help.
Specific to Colorado
Connect for Health Colorado is offering more affordability in health coverage to more people. Also, Colorado’s Health Insurance Affordability Enterprise provides assistance to people whose incomes are just over the threshold in qualifing for Medicaid.
So, there are affordable programs for a large portion of the population.
