End of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency: Medicaid/CHIP ‘Unwinding Period’ Tools and Guidance

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) compiled a webpage with state resources for the ‘unwinding period’ when the Public Health Emergency (PHE) provisions for continuous Medicaid/CHIP coverage will terminate. Recent guidance for state programs establishes a 12-month period for re-determinations of eligibility after the end of the PHE. It is anticipated that millions of people nationwide will lose coverage including many in rural communities. On this webpage CMS has provided state Medicaid/CHIP programs with toolkits for planning an orderly transition for individuals losing Medicaid/CHIP eligibility to affordable private offerings under state health exchanges.
