Community Medicaid Restoration Event
248,000 Arkansans have lost their Medicaid coverage since the re-determination requirement began following the end of the Public Health Emergency. According to DHS, “The top reasons for closures include disenrollments based on beneficiaries failing to send back required eligibility information. Obviously, the clients at The Stewpot face challenges trying to receive and send back the required information to validate eligibility. To assist them in those efforts, representatives from Delta Dental of AR, Blue Cross Blue Shield of AR, Ambetter, and a few local insurance agents met to serve Little Caesars pizza (donated by insurance carriers) and answer any questions that clients may have about their eligibility for $0 coverage or re- enrolling in Medicaid. Approximately 160 clients were served on both days.
KARK Comes to the Stewpot
Each year, on our parent company's birthday, Nexstar, stations across the country give back to their community in what we call, "Nexstar's Founder's Day of Caring." We get out into our community that we love and serve in many ways. This year, we enjoyed picking up litter, volunteering at the animal shelter, holding a book drive, and serving lunch to citizens of Little Rock at the Stewpot. At the Stewpot, our employees met lots of locals and loved seeing the work that takes place there.
