Fisher-Price has reannounced its 2019 recall of the Rock ‘n Play Sleepers on Monday after at least eight infant deaths occurred after the initial recall, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Individuals have been receiving Medicaid coverage continuously during the COVID-19 federal public health emergency (PHE), even if they did not complete a redetermination of eligibility when it was due, or provide DHHS with requested information. Last year, Congress passed legislation ending this continuous coverage, which is now set to end on March 31, 2023. Individuals must complete their redeterminations or respond to Department requests for information about eligibility status in order to keep their Medicaid coverage.
