Overcome major obstacles

Health and human services programs have an enormous task ahead of them. Why? During the pandemic, eligibility determinations and program integrity issues were largely set aside as more people sought assistance. When the PHE designation expires, and pre-pandemic rules are reinstated, your agency may have to address a huge backlog of redeterminations and recertifications — with less staff. For Medicaid and CHIP agencies, you'll have just 12 months to start the process to comply with federal requirements. Fortunately, there is a way.
