Grand View Health Cancer Center
With the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) ending on May 11, 2023, states will begin
to reinstate their yearly Medicaid eligibility reviews which will result in many recipients losing
their Medicaid coverage due to no longer meeting the qualifications for Medicaid. Through this
discussion, the participants will gain an understanding of the upcoming Medicaid Unwinding process
and why it’s important to proactively screen, educate, and navigate your patients through the
potential loss of Medicaid coverage. The speaker will also discuss the Unwinding Special Enrollment
Period (SEP) that will be available through the ACA Health Insurance Marketplace. Through case-
based discussion, the participant will understand the impact of the Medicaid Unwinding on your
patients and practice.
