Do you or your kids have #Medicaid coverage right now?
If so, then listen up!
📢 Your renewal was probably on pause due to #COVID19, but it’s making a comeback. Be sure
your state knows your current address so you will receive your renewal letter. For Oregon: https://one.oregon.gov/UserRegistration/LoginCA
Many will have their Medicaid rescinded, due to income over the poverty level of 150% and will need to transition into the Marketplace insurance (or local site such as Washington Health Plan Finder site), which offers discounted health insurance premiums based on income. This will include the Oregon Health Plan.
Make sure to fill out the renewal form, which will be mailed out to those whom might qualify for this new health insurance plan move, in the very near future. This will be referred to as the Medicaid and CHIP Continuous Enrollment Unwinding.
When is this happening and what do I need to do?:
Here are some things you can do to prepare.
1. If you moved recently or if any of your contact information like your phone number or email address has changed, I can update your account to make sure you get important information about your Medicaid or CHIP coverage.
2. Pay close attention to your mail. After we review your Medicaid or CHIP eligibility, we’ll send you one of the following in the mail: a. A letter telling you is renewing your Medicaid or CHIP coverage, or b. A letter telling you that is ending your Medicaid or CHIP coverage, or c. A Medicaid or CHIP renewal form asking you for more information to see if you or a family member still qualify for Medicaid or CHIP. If you get a renewal form, you should fill it out and return it as soon as possible to help avoid gaps in your coverage.
What happens if I no longer qualify for Medicaid or CHIP?
Even if you or a family member lose your Medicaid or CHIP coverage, you may be eligible to buy a health plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace, and get help with costs. You can call Insurance Made Easy: Kyla Beamon 503-314-9848 to submit a new or updated Marketplace application to see if you (or other family members) are eligible to buy a Marketplace plan and get help with costs.
