Medicaid eligibility reevaluations could begin in April

Congress' omnibus legislation to fund the government through September will allow states to begin reevaluating Medicaid eligibility in April 2023, The Washington Post reported Dec. 20. 

The process to roll back the pandemic-era rule that prevented states from booting people from the program comes with guardrails, according to the report. States will be required to attempt to contact beneficiaries before they remove them from Medicaid. 

The legislation also gradually phases out the 6.2 percent funding increase states received for not altering their Medicaid rules during the pandemic, according to the report.
