CMS Launches New Enhancement to Assist Beneficiaries Preparing for Medicaid & CHIP Eligibility Renewals
On May 23, 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) launched enhancements to Medicaid.gov to help beneficiaries prepare to renew their Medicaid or Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) coverage. When the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency ends, states will restart regular Medicaid and CHIP eligibility renewals, and the enhancements added to Medicaid.gov will help connect beneficiaries directly to their state to obtain needed information.
A call to action button, added to the Medicaid.gov homepage, will enable beneficiaries to be automatically directed to a new Renew Your Medicaid and CHIP coverage page that provides information on how beneficiaries can get ready to renew, including updating contact information, checking their mail and completing a renewal form, if needed. The page also provides an interactive map to easily connect beneficiaries directly to their state Medicaid agency.
