The CMS Office of Minority Health and the Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign hosted a webinar to discuss childhood vaccination and provide information and resources for partners and providers to encourage vaccinations in their community. The webinar focused on COVID-19 vaccines and included information about flu shots for National Influenza Vaccination Week. Speakers highlighted newly released recommendations on the COVID-19 vaccine for children ages 5-11, federal COVID-19 resources, flu shot information, and more.
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.
