A new document from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) summarizes mitigation strategies state Medicaid agencies have adopted to increase compliance with federal Medicaid renewal requirements.
Of note, nine states — Delaware, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, West Virginia, and Wyoming — have paused procedural terminations for beneficiaries who have not responded to the renewal form until the states implement approved mitigation strategies. States will redetermine eligibility for affected renewals once those mitigations are fully implemented.
In June, CMS implemented additional flexible policies that states could adopt to ensure a smooth transition to regular Medicaid operations, including allowing managed care plans to assist enrollees with completing and submitting Medicaid renewal forms.
