The end of continuous Medicaid enrollment has put a renewed focus on health insurance heading into 2024, as state leaders urge Pennsylvanians to stay covered.
Notably, the pandemic requirement for continuous Medicaid enrollment ended during April, meaning Pennsylvania and other states must again determine who is eligible for the program.
“We want to make sure that every Pennsylvanian who is eligible for Medicaid stays on Medicaid,” Department of Human Services (DHS) Acting Secretary Dr. Val Arkoosh said in a statement last month.
Here’s what you need to know:
With the end of continuous enrollment, DHS—in partnership with provider organizations, including HAP—has developed resources to help providers share important information with patients.
DHS’s stakeholder toolkit includes printable education materials, scripts for conversations with patients, and digital assets, such as social media posts and website graphics. The toolkit is available online.
