ACA special enrollment period opens soon for people losing Medicaid coverage

March 2023

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will open an ACA special enrollment period (SEP) for people losing Medicaid coverage due to the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). The PHE ends May 11.

The ACA SEP aims to maintain continuity of coverage as people transition from Medicaid into a Marketplace-qualified health plan. It runs March 31 to July 31, 2023.

Up to 18 million people are projected to lose Medicaid coverage starting May 11, and Blue KC will work to identify members in our service area who may lose coverage.

Blue KC can help you guide qualifying clients through the SEP process. Contact your Blue KC representative for more information.
