End of the Public Health Emergency and Medicaid
When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, the Federal Government declared a Public Health Emergency (PHE). The Public Health Emergency allowed states to loosen the rules around applying for public benefit programs like Medicaid and SNAP (also known as Food Stamps). This included changes like allowing individuals to remain covered by Medicaid even if they would not normally qualify and adding extra SNAP benefits.
When the Public Health Emergency ends, likely this July, hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians will be at risk of losing health coverage and will see changes in the amount of their SNAP benefits, among other changes.
Join us for a briefing session with Joanna Rosenhein of the Pennsylvania Health Access Network on Thursday April 21 at 12pm to learn what the end of the Public Health Emergency will mean for the people you serve and how we can work together to prepare for it.
