CMS announces special ACA enrollment period for those losing Medicaid coverage

CMS is opening an ACA special enrollment period for those losing healthcare coverage after the end of Medicaid's continuous enrollment provision. 

The special enrollment period will run from March 31, 2023, to July 31, 2024, according to a Jan. 27 CMS letter. Those eligible will have 60 days after they submit their application to select a marketplace plan. Coverage starts the first day of the month after they select a plan. 

Medicaid's continuous enrollment provision expires March 31. December estimates from the Urban Institute and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation show that up to 18 million people could lose Medicaid coverage when redeterminations begin April 1.
