Medicaid Protection allowed many people to stay covered by Medicaid without renewing throughout the COVID 19 pandemic. These rules are changing. If you use Medicaid or CHIP in Washington or Idaho, you will need to renew soon.

You can renew your Medicaid in 10 minutes online, over the phone, or in person.

You can get ready for your renewal now by updating your phone number and mailing address on your Medicaid application. Complete and current contact information will mean you get all the information about your coverage.

How will you know that it is time for you to renew?

You should receive a letter from your state Medicaid provider when your renewal date is near. WA Apple Health or ID Medicaid will send you your renewal date and instructions. The letter will also include your deadline to complete your renewal. Complete the renewal before your deadline to avoid a gap in coverage.

Want some help with your application? Do you want to know the status of your coverage? 

CHAS Health has a Patient Resources Coordinator (PRC) to help you with your Medicaid renewal at every clinic. They are certified to help you renew your coverage or find an affordable alternative if you no longer qualify.

Going forward, Medicaid will need to be renewed every year, and CHAS Health will be here to assist you.
