Are you in jeopardy of losing your Medicaid? Do not worry; you are not alone. Nearly 15 million Americans are in jeopardy of losing their Medicaid coverage due to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ending on March 31, 2023.
To ensure that coverage is maintained, follow these three simple steps.
- Update your contact information.
By making sure your contact information is up to date, you will lessen the risk of a lapse in coverage. This way, your Medicaid provider can contact you about your coverage.
- Watch out for communications.
By keeping an eye out for notifications about your current Medicaid coverage, you won’t risk being without insurance. Not everyone will be up for renewal at the same time. You will receive a notice in the mail or your online account when it’s time to renew. When you get your notice, you will have 45 days to respond.
- Renew your coverage or enroll in a private plan when you receive your notice.
Be sure to read your notice carefully. This notice will tell you to complete your renewal to let you know if you are no longer eligible for Medicaid coverage.
If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, low-cost health insurance options, such as private plans from several carriers, are available. You have until July 31, 2024, to enroll in a private plan through your Medicaid provider, but don’t wait! Enroll as soon as you learn you’re no longer eligible for Medicaid, so you don’t have a coverage gap.
