Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Congress has required states to maintain Medicaid coverage for participants while providing additional federal funding for states to administer their programs.
However, a separate law Congress passed late in 2022 effectively ends the official public health emergency, meaning states were allowed to resume Medicaid terminations on April 1.
What does this mean for Florida?
Guest: Kathy Hempstead, senior policy adviser at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The Interfaith Center of Northeast Florida and the Jacksonville Jewish Center will host their seventh joint program tonight.
