Hawk I & Medicaid Renewals To Begin:
On March 3, 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provided states with additional guidance and tools as they plan for whenever the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) does conclude. When the PHE does eventually end, states will be required, over time, to redetermine eligibility for all people enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP. This is especially notable for parents with children enrolled in Hawk I.
Update your contact information – Make sure the state Medicaid or Hawk I program has your current mailing address, phone number, email, or other contact information. This way, they’ll be able to contact you about your Medicaid or CHIP coverage.
Check your mail – The state Medicaid or Hawk I program will mail you a letter about your Medicaid or Hawk I coverage. This letter will also let you know if you need to complete a renewal form to see if you still qualify for Medicaid or Hawk I.
Complete your renewal form (if you receive one) – Fill out the form and return it to the state Medicaid or Hawk I program right away to help avoid a gap in your Medicaid or Hawk I coverage.
