Back-to-school season is a tried and true time to reach and enroll eligible children (and parents) in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It's also important for outreach organizations to establish and nurture relationships with school staff to ensure enrollment efforts continue into the school year. Schools are trusted messengers when it comes to children's well-being, and integrating enrollment services into schools is key to getting children covered. This webinar covers effective strategies for outreach and enrollment during back-to-school time and beyond to identify ways to reach more families through school activities. Speakers from across the country share successful back-to-school outreach strategies and provide tips for how to develop strong enrollment programs with local school systems.
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.
