Renewing your Apple Health (Medicaid) benefits


What you need to know and do.

Washington Apple Health

What is Apple Health renewal?

It’s the way to see if you are eligible to keep getting Apple Health (Medicaid) benefits for another year. The Health Care Authority (HCA) will send you a notice saying you need to renew, for most people it’s every 12 months.

The notice will tell you:

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

What documents will I need?

It will depend on what applies to you, so check your notice. You may need to send copies of:

  • Household monthly income
  • Social Security numbers
  • Dates of birth
  • Immigration info, if applicable

What happens if I miss the renewal due date?

If you've missed the deadline to renew, but you would like to continue coverage, please contact the HCA as soon as possible. If they find you eligible within 90 days after the date you lost coverage, they will cover you for the period you were without coverage.
