Medicaid Unwinding Unwound: Addressing the Path to Renewal
Thursday, February 15, 2024 from 2pm - 2:30pm ET
Join Children’s Health Fund (CHF) for a virtual discussion on the impacts of the Medicaid unwinding and renewal efforts around the country. This in-depth conversation will focus on recent developments within hospital communities and schools in the CHF National Network of healthcare programs.
This event is relevant to healthcare, public health, public policy, and education professionals, as well as anyone concerned about the state of healthcare in the U.S.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Congress enacted a provision allowing Medicaid programs to keep recipients enrolled through the duration of the pandemic public health emergency. Medicaid enrollment increased significantly during this period–ensuring healthcare for families and children–while uninsured rates fell. This enrollment requirement ended in December 2022, setting in motion a period of disenrollment–known as the Medicaid unwinding. Through the unwinding, millions of people could lose Medicaid coverage, a lifeline for adults, children, and families who may otherwise go without essential healthcare.
