    The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) met on on Nov. 2 and 3 to discuss a number of issues, including state and managed care plan strategies for the continuous coverage requirement in Medicaid. This discussion included a panel on states’ efforts around Medicaid unwinding with Amir Bassiri, deputy commissioner of the Office of Health Insurance Programs and acting Medicaid director for the New York State Department of Health, Stephanie Myers, state affairs director for Medicaid Health Plans of America, and Cora Steinmetz, JD, Medicaid director for the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. Panelists shared their state’s experience and how they have navigated challenges. Additionally, the commission began discussing and evaluating how they can leverage lessons learned from the unwinding to inform policy recommendations moving forward.
