Renewing your Medicaid is how you can keep your health coverage for another year.
Every year, everyone with Medicaid needs to go through a renewal process to keep their coverage. You have not had to renew your Medicaid since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Now Illinois is starting renewals again to make sure all members are still eligible for coverage. Everybody’s renewal date is different, so it is important that you get ready to renew now. Learn what you need to do.
