Potential government shutdown

In the event of a federal government shutdown, individuals enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid), Public Employees Benefits Board, and School Employees Benefits Board coverage—and those accessing behavioral health services—will not experience a disruption in care. In addition, health care providers will continue to be paid for the services they provide.

If a shutdown occurs, we will share more information at that time.

Not having health insurance was a stressor for Gloria and her family. They would avoid going to the doctor for preventive care visits, and her children couldn’t see the dentist because she didn’t know if it was going to be costly.

Knowing that her children needed coverage, she applied for Apple Health (Medicaid) and was approved. With Apple Health they were able to go to routine preventive care visits and the dentist without the worry of out-of-pocket costs.
