What We're Working On Today

Wednesday, Feb 8

That's when the pandemic-era"continuous coverage" rule ends, meaning those on Medicaid will have to reapply and have their eligibility redetermined. The Department of Healthcare and Family Services says it will work with those who are dropped to help them access other coverage, including through the ACA marketplace.
