Families living in rural communities are disproportionately uninsured compared to those from urban and suburban areas across the country. They can face many barriers to ensuring proper health coverage, including language disparities, low literacy rates, and limited access to enrollment assistance in programs such as Medicaid and CHIP. Watch this webinar to take a closer look at the barriers to health care in rural America and learn from partners and community-based organizations specializing in helping eligible families enroll in Medicaid and CHIP in these communities.
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.
