State health leaders are reminding Pennsylvanians who need to reenroll in the Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) about the critical steps to stay covered.
This week, officials with the Shapiro administration and Independence Health System hosted an event at Butler Memorial Hospital focused on the end of continuous Medicaid enrollment and what Pennsylvanians should do during the enrollment and redetermination process.
“We want to make sure that every Pennsylvanian who is eligible for Medicaid stays on Medicaid,” Dr. Val Arkoosh, Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) secretary, said in a statement. “If you or a someone you know has their health coverage through the state, please make sure their address and all contact information is up to date with DHS so everyone is ready to renew and stay covered when it's time."
Here’s what you need to know:
With the end of continuous enrollment, DHS—in partnership with provider organizations, including HAP—has developed resources to help providers share important information with patients.
DHS’s stakeholder toolkit includes printable education materials, scripts for conversations with patients, and digital assets, such as social media posts and website graphics. The toolkit is available online.
