Starting in April 2023, Georgia will have about a year to unwind the pandemic-era Medicaid continuous coverage policy and re-determine the eligibility of all Georgians who get their health care coverage through Medicaid and PeachCare. This will put unprecedented pressure on our state agencies and our health care system and could result in major coverage losses—including temporary losses in coverage for children. Grassroots organizations play an important role—through advocacy and community support—in minimizing the harm of the unwinding and helping Georgians stay connected to life-saving health care.
We partnered with Georgians for a Healthy Future and Georgia Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call For Moral Revival to create the Georgia Medicaid Unwinding Toolkit, which provides critical guidance and resources to help support those affected by the unwinding process.
