On June 1, 2023, KFF Health news reported that more than 600,000 Americans have lost Medicaid coverage since pandemic protections ended on April 1, 2023. During the pandemic, Medicaid programs were prohibited from dropping any covered individuals. But now that pandemic protections have ended, States are back to performing normal pre-pandemic annual reviews. It is anticipated that amount 15 million people will be dropped from the Medicaid roles over the next year. Another concern are scams where individuals want to charge a fee to protect your Medicaid without the tools and expertise to make that happen (e.g., practicing law without a license).
