CMS readies for transition to post-PHE world

CMS readies for transition to post-PHE world

WASHINGTON – CMS has developed resources to help Medicaid officials and other health care stakeholders prepare for the eventual end of the COVD-19 public health emergency, according to AAHomecare. 

Resources currently available include: 

The end of the PHE will require states to effectively plan for reimplementing their enrollment and disenrollment procedures. States receiving 6.2% FMAP funding provided by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act were restricted from disenrolling members from Medicaid during the PHE. When the PHE ends, these states will be evaluating the Medicaid eligibility of all of its members.  

AAHomecare says providers should be aware of these processes in their state(s) and be prepared to handle a larger than normal volume of payer changes during this time. 

AAHomecare, as well as state/regional HME associations, will share more updates and guidance for HME suppliers as it becomes available.
