The long holiday during which no Medicaid cases have been closed, and annual renewals have not been required, is about to come to an end. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services has issued two notices of proposed policy which indicate that with the end of the federal health emergency will come an end of the stay on renewals and closures.
Both notices indicate that the date on which the change will become effective is “to be determined.” But word on the street is maybe July 1.
For Medicaid planners and their clients, this is significant.
Maybe someday some of you will be thinking: “Ahhhh the pandemic … the good old days.” (But I didn’t say that I would ever think that.)
