Medicaid Redetermination: What It Could Mean for You

Do you or someone you know have Medical Assistance or Medicaid coverage? If so, a process called Medicaid Redetermination may affect you. You may need to renew your coverage to make sure you are still eligible. If you are no longer eligible, AmeriHealth can help!

The Families First Coronavirus Act of 2020 protected Medicaid recipients from being disenrolled from Medicaid, even if they were no longer eligible. In May, the State of New Jersey began redetermining eligibility for its Medicaid recipients. Some people may still be eligible to stay on their Medicaid plan, and others may lose their Medicaid coverage.

What Medicaid Recipients Can Do

If you currently have a Medicaid plan, you will be receiving (or may have already received) a renewal letter in the mail. Be sure to follow the instructions in the letter and complete your renewal on time.

If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, make sure you are covered for any unexpected medical costs. We can help you find health insurance that fits your needs and budget. With AmeriHealth, you get:

  • One of the largest networks of doctors and hospitals in New Jersey
  • $0 preventive care for adults and children
  • $0* virtual care — request an appointment with a doctor, behavioral health counselor, or dermatologist 24/7
  • Money back for your healthy habits

See If You Qualify for $0 Health Insurance

Depending on your household income, you may be eligible to enroll in a health plan for as little as $0 a month. Stay healthy without worrying about the high cost of health care.

We know this might be a confusing time for people who are losing their Medicaid coverage, but we’re here to help. Call AmeriHealth at 1-833-757-1788 (TTY: 711) to speak with a licensed agent.
