On April 1, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will reinstate the requirements and conditions for CHIP & Medicaid coverage that they waived during the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you or a family member have health insurance through Medicaid or CHIP, you may soon need to take steps to find out if you can keep that coverage.
If you haven’t already received a renewal letter from your state’s Medicaid agency, here are some things you can do now:
You may be able to buy a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and get help paying for it. Visit HealthCare.gov or call the Marketplace Call Center at (800) 318-2596 [TTY: (855) 889-4325] to submit a new or updated Marketplace application.
