What Happens When States Kick People Off Medicaid?

July 10, 2023

The pandemic-era protections have ended that kept states from bumping people off the health insurance program for low-income Americans, and more than 1.5 million Americans have lost their coverage so far. In our next webinar on July 28, from 10-11 a.m. PDT, we’ll look at how the loss of the pandemic’s Medicaid protections are impacting vulnerable families across the country and take a close look at Arkansas, using the state as a bellwether for the broader trend of coverage losses unfolding nationally. We’ll discuss what the sudden loss of public insurance means for families’ health, how groups are working to combat this policy reversal, and how reporters can tell this story in distinctly human terms.
