Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is posting an update to its Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Medicaid.gov website to aid state Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) agencies in their response to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. CMS is taking this action to continue its efforts to protect the health and safety of providers and patients, including those who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP.

You can find the updated FAQs here: https://www.medicaid.gov/state-resource-center/downloads/covid-19-faqs.pdf

These FAQs, and earlier CMS actions in response to the COVID-19 virus, are part of the ongoing White House Task Force efforts.
