Georgian's eligibility for Medicaid is being reassessed
The complex process of reassessing Georgians’ eligibility for Medicaid has started.
COVID-era Medicaid regulations prevented anyone enrolled in Medicaid from being disenrolled during the public health emergency.
But those pandemic-era regulations ended at the start of this month, and Georgia will now have to determine which Medicaid members remain eligible for coverage.
With the redetermination process expected to take more than a year, the fiscal 2023 mid-year budget includes funding to hire 450 case managers to manage the process at Georgia Department of Human Services.
