Typically, the Medicaid redetermination process must occur at least every 12 months, ensuring that a beneficiary is still eligible to receive Medicaid benefits. This process, however, has been delayed due to the ongoing Public Health Emergency (PHE). When normal Medicaid enrollment and eligibility processes are restored at the end of PHE, States and Health Plans will be under significant pressure to tackle the challenges resulting from the pending verifications, redeterminations, and renewals.
For one, they must quickly process significant volume backlogs and ensure readiness within the timelines mandated by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). For another, they must ease the confusion among members caused by the lack of clarity around the redetermination process, issues with language comprehension, etc. Additionally, studies indicate that nearly 40% of members are unaware of the nuances of the renewal process while nearly 50% of enrollees rely on telephone, mail and in-person applications. Delayed submissions could result in the disenrollment of large chunks of members, impacting healthcare outcomes for members and revenues for Health Plans.
