Executive Summary

The NHeLP Medicaid COVID Top 10 Series provides advocates with a useful tool to guide COVID-related work with Medicaid agencies. The COVID Top 10 lists cover a range of critical Medicaid topics and each list offers actionable recommendations for advocacy.

States have numerous options to increase access to health coverage and COVID-19 testing and treatment. While recent federal legislation did not change eligibility requirements for immigrants in Medicaid and CHIP, states also have options for providing testing and treatment in those programs.
