In 2020, the Federal government paused its annual renewal process for Medicaid to help people avoid losing their health insurance during the pandemic. However, legislation signed on December 29, 2022, allows states to begin their renewal process again starting February 1, 2023.
If your letter has a renewal form, you will need to submit it to find out if you still qualify for Medicaid. The form will have instructions about how to submit it. Don’t wait to do this. If you don’t submit the form, you could lose your health insurance.

If you are working, you may be able to get health insurance through your job. You typically have 60 days from the date you lose your Medicaid insurance to enroll in a health plan through your work. Ask your employer what your options are.
