Red tape shouldn’t get in the way of Americans’ ability to access health care. A new rule is being proposed by the Biden Administration to ease the enrollment process for Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and Basic Health Programs (BHPs), as well as cut arbitrary coverage caps for children in CHIP.
In a Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is working to reduce red tape and simplify application and verification processes to make it easier for children, older adults, and people with lower incomes with Medicaid and CHIP coverage to enroll in and retain vital health insurance.
