Medicaid Protection Ending Soon: 5 Million Latinos at Risk

Since the start of the COVID pandemic, Medicaid enrollees have been protected by a special “continuous coverage” requirement that prevents states from terminating their coverage during the pandemic.

However, this protection ends on April 1, and states will begin to review and cancel insurance coverage. Unless Medicaid protects families more than it did before COVID, nearly 5 million Latinos could lose their health care. This webinar will explain why this is happening and the critical steps you can take to help Latino communities stay enrolled.

La protección de Medicaid terminará pronto: 5 millones de latinos en riesgo

Desde el comienzo de la pandemia del COVID, las personas con Medicaid han estado protegidas por una “cobertura continua” especial que evita que los estados terminen su cobertura durante la pandemia. Sin embargo, esta protección finaliza el 1 de abril y los estados comenzarán a revisar y cancelar dichas coberturas del seguro. A menos que Medicaid proteja a las familias más que antes de cuando la pandemia del COVID sucediera, casi 5 millones de latinos podrían perder su atención médica. Este webinar explicará por qué sucede esto y los pasos críticos que puedes tomar para ayudar a las comunidades latinas a permanecer inscritas.
