The pandemic had few silver linings. But one of them was a federal emergency program that automatically renewed Medicaid coverage for those who qualified. It’s unclear when the program will expire, but health advocates fear people could be kicked out of their health insurance without realizing it.
The end date is a bit of a moving target. When the emergency was declared two years ago, automatic renewals were put into effect for 90 days. Since then, the federal government has renewed the program in 90-day increments.
