Medicaid “Unwinding”

July 14, 2023

See the message below from Tammy Whitlock, Deputy Director for Complex Care and Services at DMAS:

“I wanted to touch base on the current and ongoing redeterminations occurring for our Medicaid members.  I know you all have probably listened on webinars or attended meetings on this topic, but we are concerned that members who have not returned their redetermination packets will start to get denials of services soon.  


“I’ve attached some slides to show you the current level of closures and reasons.  Please ask your providers to talk to the individuals they see and encourage them to return their paperwork so that we can avoid gaps in coverage if possible.  If you need any additional information on this topic, please let us know.  Thanks as always for your commitment to our members and your partnership.
