As the pandemic’s Public Health Emergency (PHE) eventually ends, states will start to reassess Medicaid and CHIP eligibility. This PHE saw almost a 20% increase in Medicaid and CHIP enrollment, a record 85 million people, according to Kaiser Family Foundation. However, only half of states have a plan for how they will advance renewal and eligibility when continuous enrollment coverage ends so the importance of Medicaid/CHIP users to renew coverage is more important than ever. Advocates should encourage Medicaid enrollees to make sure to update their contact information with most current mailing addresses, phone numbers, and email, as these are ways the state will contact them with a renewal form. CMS has set up a new webpage which provides guidance to Medicaid enrollees on what to do to make sure they are ready for the renewal process.
