For the past 3 years, the annual requirement to renew Medicaid coverage was paused because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Medicaid referred to this exception as the “continuous enrollment condition.” However, this condition has now ended and states are resuming Medicaid eligibility reviews. This means that states will begin using the information they have to decide if Medicaid recipients remain eligible for Medicaid.
In order to ensure continued Medicaid coverage, Medicaid advises recipients to update their contact information with a current mailing address, phone number, and email address. Medicaid also instructs recipients to check their mail as they will receive a letter from their state about Medicaid coverage. The letter will state whether a renewal form is needed. If a renewal form is sent, the form needs to be completed and sent back as soon as possible to avoid any gaps in coverage.
After being approved for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), you are entitled to Medicaid coverage. Any beneficiaries of SSI need to be on the lookout for any mail coming from the Medicaid office.
