A new toolkit to help hospitals temporarily enroll people in Medicaid through a “presumptive eligibility” process is now available from Enroll America. Starting in 2014, hospitals may make Medicaid presumptive eligibility determinations by collecting a few basic pieces of information, such as income and household size. The toolkit includes information about the new presumptive eligibility option and outlines steps hospitals may take to use it. Staff of America’s Essential Hospitals, which is on Enroll America’s advisory council, provided technical assistance and support in developing the toolkit.
