School administrators and leaders are engaging in strategic approaches to reduce the number of eligible students not enrolled in Medicaid or CHIP. Professionals who work in school environments are uniquely positioned to identify children that need health coverage. They are using this opportunity to forge partnerships with community organizations and actively assist in connecting families to health care. By integrating health insurance enrollment efforts into school activities, including communication to school-based health centers and extracurricular programs, this partnership can strengthen the connection between schools and health care, and ultimately enroll more students in Medicaid and CHIP.
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.
