Don't Risk a Loss in Your Medicaid Coverage
When the COVID-related public health emergency ends, the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services will start evaluating each person’s Medicaid eligibility. People with Medicaid benefits could lose their coverage if they don’t provide the information DHS needs to verify their income or residency.
If you are a member of Health Partners Medicare and also receive Medicaid benefits, you should take the following steps to make sure you receive your Medicaid renewal application paperwork.
- Make sure your contact information is up to date. If your address has changed, please notify your local County Assistance Office or visit the COMPASS website.
- Check your mail. DHS will mail you a letter about your Medicaid coverage. This letter will let you know when you need to complete your application to see if you still qualify for Medicaid benefits.
- Complete and return your renewal application on time. Return your eligibility application by the deadline to avoid the loss of your Medicaid coverage.
You could lose coverage if you do not receive and complete your renewal form.
