During the pandemic, Medicaid has played a critical role in providing coverage to millions of people who have lost their jobs or their health coverage. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act require states to maintain eligibility standards and provide continuous enrollment in Medicaid until the end of the public health emergency (PHE) in order to qualify for enhanced federal Medicaid funding.

Today, Georgetown University CCF and the Kaiser Family Foundation published their annual survey on state Medicaid and CHIP eligibility levels. It presents a snapshot of key aspects of state enrollment and renewal procedures in place during the COVID-19 PHE based on a survey of Medicaid and CHIP program officials in the 50 states and DC. This go-to resource includes policies for children, pregnant women, parents and other non-elderly adults.
