Xavier Becerra, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, spoke at a Minneapolis news conference in July.

The federal government is requiring Minnesota and 28 other states to restart coverage for a large subset of Medicaid enrollees who may have mistakenly lost benefits this summer through a procedural glitch.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Service (HHS) announced the requirement Thursday. These states, the agency says, need to improve an auto-renewal process that lets some beneficiaries maintain coverage without additional documentation.

Federal regulators say some still-eligible beneficiaries may have wrongly lost coverage in Minnesota and other states due to auto-renewal problems.
