New federal rules will require New York State to begin redetermining eligibility for public program enrollees in the spring of 2023. Enrollees in Medicaid, Child Health Plus (CHP) and the Essential Plan (EP) have not had to renew their health insurance since early 2020 due to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) continuous coverage requirements for these public programs, which were adopted by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act in March 2020. However, the December 2022 Consolidated Appropriations Act included new rules, ending the continuous coverage requirements starting spring 2023.
Representatives from the NYS Department of Health will be on site to answer any questions you may have.
Beginning in spring 2023, renewal notices will be sent to enrollees in these programs based on their enrollment end dates. Renewal notices will include the deadline to take action to renew their insurance or risk having a gap in coverage. Deadlines will be based on the enrollees’ enrollment end dates and will range from June 30, 2023, through May 31, 2024. In addition, new drug coverage protocols are being implemented to Medicaid Managed Care Beneficiaries and may determine a pharmacy change for you or your family.
