Kevin McKay, Vice President of Market Partnership Strategy & Performance for CCA Health Rhode Island, appeared on WJAR Studio 10 to discuss the Medicaid redetermination process in Rhode Island.
McKay explained that Medicaid redetermination paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, but with the end of the federal Public Health Emergency, states are resuming the process. As a result, Rhode Island Medicaid recipients will be asked annually to provide proof of their eligibility to remain enrolled.
“We want people to make sure their contact information is updated because we don’t want them to miss this paperwork,” McKay said, noting CCA Health Rhode Island will help eligible members maintain their coverage.
Other resources for navigating the Medicaid redetermination process include staycoveredRI.org and the state’s Healthy Rhode app.
