Medicaid Renewals Again Required
By: Aprill Murphy
ALBION, Nebraska (May 8, 2023) – Medicaid renewals are now open for eligible residents in Nebraska. During the COVID pandemic, renewals were not required. However, they are once again needed to continue coverage.
Current beneficiaries must complete an annual renewal form and provide updated information on their household income, family size, and other eligibility requirements. Failure to renew coverage could result in loss of benefits. Medicaid members should watch their mail for essential updates from DHHS.
“We encourage all current Medicaid beneficiaries to renew their coverage as soon as possible to avoid any interruption in their healthcare services,” said Rita Liss, Vice President of Financial Services at Boone County Health Center.
Medicaid is a federally funded program that provides health coverage for low-income individuals and families and limited resources. Medicaid covers over 240,000 people in Nebraska, including children, pregnant women, and adults with disabilities.
To check renewal dates and update contact information, Medicaid members can visit ACCESSNebraska.ne.gov or call DHHS toll-free at 1-855-632-7633.
