If you or a family member currently has health coverage through Medicaid or the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program, called KCHIP, there are changes coming.

What’s changing?
Because of COVID-19, the federal government declared a public health emergency (PHE). During this time, changes were made so that Medicaid and KCHIP renewals were not required, so people did not lose their coverage.

However, Kentucky will restart Medicaid annual renewals April 1, 2023.
** You will receive a letter when it is your time to renew.**

Make sure you take the necessary steps to keep your coverage!

  1. Update your information: Make sure has your correct mailing address, phone number, and email. This way, they can contact you without delay.
  2. Check your mail: You will get a letter about your Medicaid or KCHIP renewal when it is your time. The letter will let you know if you need to complete a form or send in information to keep your coverage.
  3. Send in information: If you get a form, fill it out, return it right away. Make sure to give us any information we request. The information will help determine if you still qualify for coverage.
