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.

New Report on the Decreasing Rate of Uninsured Kids

New Report on the Decreasing Rate of Uninsured Kids

February 26, 2016

A new Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) report, produced by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC), shows the number of U.S. children who lack health insurance fell by 1 million — from 7.5% of all children in 2013 to 6.3% in 2014. The analysis shows that decreases in the uninsured were especially pronounced among Hispanic and non-White children (-1.9 percentage points and -1.5 percentage points, respectively) and those living in families with a low household income (-1.7 percentage points) — groups that historically have been most likely to be uninsured. The report includes state-specific 2-page profiles that illustrate these trends for all 50 states and D.C. The full report and state summary profiles can be found in the State Level Trends in Children's Health Insurance Coverage (2016 Report) on the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) website.
