State, feds differ on explaining why 100,000 Nevadans lost Medicaid coverage

Federal and state officials are offering divergent explanations for why more than 100,000 people were removed from Nevada’s Medicaid rolls as the state checks beneficiaries’ eligibility for the first time in three years.

114,000 Nevadans who were booted from Medicaid over paperwork allowed back on

More than 100,000 Nevadans who had lost their Medicaid coverage because they did not return their renewal documentation have been reinstated into the government-funded health insurance program, state officials said last week. The mass terminations in the program that serves about a third of the Nevada population came as the state ended a pandemic-era federal policy requiring states to keep Medicaid recipients continuously enrolled in the health care program for low-income people, rather than frequently checking whether beneficiaries are still eligible based on income and other factors.
