The Utah Department of Health is proposing unprecedented changes to Utah’s Medicaid program that will cause many to lose coverage and have a harder time accessing care. These changes include:
- Time limits on enrollment for PCN and adults without children. These populations will be limited to 60 months.
- Work requirements for PCN enrollees. Failure to complete will mean an enrollee loses coverage
- Penalties for non-emergency use of the ER, and no additional case management or patient education to help enrollees
The Department wants to move forward regardless of what happens to health care reform in Congress. Learn more about the substance of these proposals, or visit the Department of Health’s application here.
