Renewals starting for Medical Assistance Recipients

Everyone who receives Medical Assistance will need to complete a renewal packet within the next year. You can expect to get renewal forms about two months before the month you originally applied for health insurance. For example, if you applied in July, your MA renewal forms will be mailed to you in May. Do not worry if you don’t remember when you applied. We will mail renewal forms to you when it is time to renew your MA. Return the requested materials by the deadline to prevent losing your coverage. Follow the instructions included in the packet for how to submit it.
We can help you:
  • Update your address to ensure you get your packet. If you have moved in the past three years or will you be moving soon, update your contact information.
  • Answer questions about your existing insurance.
