Study: Enrollment Process Hinders State Public Health Insurance Programs

 A new study by the New York State Health Foundation shows that about one-third of enrollees in the states public health insurance programs, including Child Health Plus, Family Health Plus, and Medicaid lose their coverage because they fail to complete the annual re certification process.

Joining with Lake Research Partners, NYSHealth worked to identify the barriers and possible solutions to simplify the process. Senior VP David Sandman says efforts by the state currently underway include allowing for telephone renewal and establishing a new statewide enrollment center.

The goal is to prevent the loss of coverage and subsequent economic and health-related complications.
