Renewing your Medicaid benefits


Please renew on time to keep your benefits.


What is Medicaid renewal?

It’s the way to see if you are eligible to keep getting Medicaid benefits for another year. The state will send you a notice saying you need to reapply for Medicaid, for most people it’s every 12 months.

You will get a renewal notice in the mail listing:

  • The date your documents are due
  • What information you need to give
  • What documents you need to send
  • Ways you can renew

Please complete all paperwork.

What happens if I miss the renewal due date?

If you miss the renewal due date, your benefits may end.

What if I no longer qualify for Medicaid?

If you don't meet income requirements for this program, you may qualify for other health benefit coverage through the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
