Several state insurance regulators believe it could take up to one year to fully finish redetermining eligibility for their Medicaid populations after the COVID-19 public health emergency ends, Fierce Healthcare reports. While preparations are underway, some state regulatory officials and a consumer outreach group said that more funding and outreach could be needed, the report says. Currently, the PHE is expected to be extended in October for another 90 days, but the Biden administration may not keep it going well into 2023.
