Medicaid coverage and redetermination
Learn more about potential changes to Medicaid's annual redetermination process.
Make sure you stay covered.
If you have health insurance coverage through your state’s Medicaid program, please be aware that requirements are changing soon.
In 2020, the federal government stopped requiring the annual Medicaid redetermination process in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, state Medicaid agencies have continued to pause this process.
Beginning in April 2023, most states will begin the Medicaid redetermination process again, so you will need to re-apply and receive approval to continue Medicaid coverage.
If you rely on Medicaid today, now is the time to get ready for this change:
- Visit this federal website for more information and to access a link to your state agency website for more information
- Confirm your contact information (mailing address and phone number) with your state agency to make sure you receive important communication about the changes and application process
- Respond to all Medicaid-issued notices about renewal and provide any requested documentation to verify eligibility
