On October 14, the Montana Budget & Policy Center submitted comment to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) urging them to deny Montana’s request to end 12-month continuous eligibility for adult Medicaid enrollees. Roughly 17,000 Montanans risk losing coverage with the end of continuous eligibility, according to a recent analysis. This effort by the state will hurt individuals’ access to coverage, including critical preventative care, and impact Montana’s economic recovery.
