Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is releasing an informational bulletin and slide deck to address questions CMS has received from states, stakeholders, and external partners regarding the permissibility of certain practices during Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) renewals. To clarify what is permitted under existing federal renewal requirements, both during and beyond unwinding, these resources reiterate some of the relevant federal renewal requirements for state reference, outline policy and operational practices that are not permitted under existing federal Medicaid and CHIP redetermination regulations, and provide illustrative examples of processes that are not permitted under federal requirements.
