Attention Medicaid Enrollees Review. Respond. Renew!
You should have recently received information from your Medicaid plan which informs you of the need to confirm your information with your Medicaid plan to begin the return to the normal pre-COVID enrollment process. To ensure you don’t lose coverage, please be on the lookout for information from your Medicaid plan so you don’t miss your renewal date. It’s important that you open and respond to all mail from your Medicaid plan.

Why you need to re-enroll in coverage:
At the start of the pandemic, Congress enacted the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which included a requirement that Medicaid programs keep people continuously enrolled through the end of the month in which the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) ends, in exchange for enhanced federal funding. This continuous enrollment period will end on March 31, 2023.
States cannot restrict eligibility standards, methodologies, and procedures and states cannot increase premiums as required in Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). Further, states must also comply with federal rules about conducting renewals. Lastly, states are required to maintain up to date contact information and attempt to contact enrollees prior to disenrollment.
Medicaid plans are making efforts to conduct outreach, education and provide enrollment assistance to help ensure that those who remain eligible for Medicaid can retain coverage and those who are no longer eligible can transition to other sources of coverage.
