During the COVID-19 emergency, the federal government allowed states to implement temporary changes in their Medicaid programs to protect member health and safety. The federal government has now given us a timeline to end those changes. “Unwinding” is the term they have coined to describe the period it will take for states to reinstate routine operations.
The biggest change will be that all of our members who have had continuous health care coverage since March 2020 will need to complete a renewal due in a month assigned to them between June 2023 and May 2024. This topic and more will be discussed during the briefing.
The target audience for this message is broad and includes health care associations, managed care organizations, providers, advocates, and partners. If you have questions or would like more information, email DHSForwardHealthPartners@dhs.wisconsin.gov.
