Medicaid Unwinding Report from the Field Released

Nationally, over 15 million people have been disenrolled from Medicaid since April 1, 2023 and over 28 million have had their coverage renewed. Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) has published a Medicaid Unwinding Brief that summarizes information gathered from stakeholder interviews to highlight key observations and themes from the field, including perspectives from Pennsylvania. With the growing concern over such large disenrollment numbers, the federal government issued additional guidance with strategies to help states protect coverage and prevent additional procedural terminations.  Pennsylvania has disenrolled more than 575,000 recipients from coverage since April 1, renewed coverage for 1.3 million, and terminated 44% for procedural issues.
