Changes to Medicaid Copays During COVID-19 Outbreak
Tuesday, March 17, 2020 3:15 PM
The Department of Medicaid Services has issued an emergency regulation (to be replaced by an ordinary regulation making the same changes) on Medicaid copayments. The regulation exempts 1915(c) Medicaid members and those who are in a long-term care facility from Medicaid co-pays, and waives copayments for all Medicaid members under Governor Andy Beshear’s emergency declaration for COVID-19. It also will allow for an MCO to reduce or eliminate copays which would impact enrollees once the emergency is lifted.
