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.

Supporting Smiles: Promoting Childhood Dental Benefits Covered Under Medicaid and CHIP

Supporting Smiles: Promoting Childhood Dental Benefits Covered Under Medicaid and CHIP

February 15, 2022

Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) provide comprehensive health coverage , including dental care, to more than 39 million children up to age 19 nationwide. However, the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency caused many parents and caregivers to delay important routine care for their children, like regular dental check-ups. In this webinar, held during the 2022 National Children’s Dental Health Month, Dr. Natalia Chalmers, CMS’s Chief Dental Officer, and Dr. Jane Grover, Director, Council on Access, Prevention and Interprofessional Relations with the American Dental Association, discussed the current landscape of dental care among children. Other organizations presented strategies and tips to promote oral health care. Connecting Kids to Coverage National Campaign resources to promote dental health year-round, including social media posts and graphics, newsletter articles and text messages, were featured. All resources discussed in this webinar can be found on InsureKidsNow.gov.
