Renew your Medicaid or CHIP coverage

As COVID-19 becomes less of a threat, states will restart yearly Medicaid and CHIP eligibility reviews. This means your state will use the information they have to decide if you or your family member(s) still qualify for Medicaid or CHIP coverage. If your state needs more information from you to make a coverage decision, they’ll send you a renewal letter in the mail. Go to Medicaid.gov/renewals, find a link to your state Medicaid office and confirm your contact information is up-to-date.
