How do I renew my Medicaid coverage?

Now that the threat of COVID-19 is subsiding, states will again start doing annual qualifying checks for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This means that your state will use the information it has to decide if you or someone in your family still qualifies for Medicaid or CHIP.

Be prepared to renew your Medicaid coverage now.

According to the website, here are three things you can do: 1. Make sure your state has your current mailing address, phone number, email address, or other way to contact you. So, they can get in touch with you about your Medicaid or CHIP benefits. 2. Check your mail - your state will send you a letter about your benefits. This letter will tell you if you need to fill out a renewal form to find out if you still qualify for Medicaid or CHIP. 3. If you get one, fill out your renewal form. Fill out the form and send it back to your state right away to keep your benefits from stopping.
