With the PHE unwinding, State Medicaid Programs will once again check member eligibility for Medicaid that had been suspended during COVID-19 and the resulting Public Health Emergency. Many members will not renew automatically and will need to re-apply and submit documentation to remain on HUSKY Health. The Department of Social Services wants to make sure that HUSKY members don’t lose coverage — especially those with high-risk conditions and most in need of continued health services. And CTDHP certainly doesn’t want members who are unaware of the re-application to lose HUSKY coverage, and thus potentially stop getting needed health services.
