Medicaid changes effective April mean that many Florida children will lose their health insurance coverage because of Medicaid Unwinding. Make sure your child does not lose health insurance!
What you should know about Medicaid Unwinding
|The COVID-19 pandemic made it important for people to have health insurance. Insurance helps people who are sick pay for medical bills.|
|One type of insurance that people have is called Medicaid. Each year, people usually need to apply for Medicaid insurance.|
|However, since the COVID-19 pandemic started, the government let people keep Medicaid insurance, without needing to apply every year.|
Make sure your contact information is up to date on the Department of Children and Families website.
After updating your contact information, you need to wait until you receive an envelope in the mail. This envelope will have a yellow stripe.
|The first set of envelopes will go out in April 2023. But, you may not get your envelope until a few months from now. That’s okay.|
Do not try to reenroll in Medicaid coverage if you haven’t heard back yet. This may add more waiting and issues .
