In May, the Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) began the process of Medicaid unwinding for enrollees who may no longer be eligible following the end of the federal public health emergency (PHE). Reviews are being conducted monthly through the end of the year, and enrollees will be notified ahead of their review date.
DMS is holding virtual stakeholder forums each month to help assist stakeholders and providers. These sessions will provide Q&A about the process and how to assist patients who may be disenrolled.
The next Kentucky Medicaid provider forum on unwinding will be held this Thursday, June 15 at 11am. Registration is available here.
Additional resources for physicians are provided below. More information is available at MedicaidUnwinding.Ky.gov.
