For those that are not familiar with this matter, Congress enacted the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This Act required that Medicaid programs keep people continuously enrolled in exchange for enhanced federal funding "until the end of the month in which the public health emergency ends in order to receive enhanced federal funding".
As part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act signed into law on December 29, 2022, the continuous enrollment provision will end on March 31, 2023, meaning that millions of individuals could lose coverage.
