Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted additional Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) to, to aid state Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) agencies in their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new FAQs cover a variety of Medicaid and CHIP topics, including:

  • Eligibility and Enrollment
  • Financing
  • CHIP
  • Benefits
  • Managed Care

These new FAQs have been integrated into the previously released COVID-19 FAQ document, as we have done with prior updates. We are also posting a standalone document containing only the new questions.

The information released today furthers CMS’s commitment to providing our state partners the resources they need during this public health emergency, and earlier CMS actions in response to the COVID-19 crisis are all part of ongoing White House Coronavirus Task Force efforts.
