(August 29, 2023, Salisbury, MD) The Maryland Department of Health has sent out stats on Medicaid renewals.  During the first three months of Medicaid renewals, 16.2%, or about 66,000 Maryland participants, were procedurally disenrolled due to not submitting or completing the required paperwork. In an initial analysis of May and June, 60 zip codes accounted for 60% of the disenrollments. These numbers could be high because of auto renewal in the past.  This year you must update your information.  Salisbury zip codes 21801 had 207 and 21804 had 310 that DID NOT renew their Medicaid.  Medicaid renewals continue through April 2024.  If you have not renewed your Medicaid please do so before April 2024.  It is very important that you make sure your contact information is up to date so that you can receive and respond to important messages about your health insurance. Members will receive a notice prior to the end of their renewal period. To prepare, members should begin gathering information about themselves and other family members in their household to confirm eligibility. This includes:

  • Birthdates
  • Social Security Numbers (or document numbers for legal immigrants)
  • Citizenship or immigration status
  • Tax returns for previous years
  • Employer and income info (pay stubs, W-2 forms)
  • Policy numbers for any current health insurance and information about employer-sponsored coverage you or someone in your household is eligible for.

Marylanders who have Medicaid or MCHP health coverage through Maryland Health Connection can update their contact information three ways: online, by phone, or in person.

Marylanders who have Medicaid coverage through myMDTHINK because they are aged, blind, or disabled, or they are enrolled in a Home and Community-Based Services program can update their contact information three ways: online, by phone, or in person.
