Keep Your Medicaid Benefits Intact
Medicaid benefits support many of the disability services provided by LIFEPlan, including care management. To ensure you continue to receive Medicaid benefits, it is important that accurate information is relayed to Medicaid.
Changes in address, income, source of income, and amount of resources may require you to recertify. In addition, many people who receive Medicaid will need to recertify due to the ending of the public health emergency (PHE) that was in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Your Care Manager will help you with Medicaid recertification. Register for the Member and Family Forum below to learn more.

What to Know About Medicaid Recertification
You must recertify for Medicaid if there has been a change in the following:
- Living arrangements (verify address, household members, rent, water bills)
- Income (provide pay stubs, tax forms)
- Resources (provide bank statements and other resources)
- Insurance (provide insurance card)
- Satisfactory Immigration Citizenship (provide birth certificate, naturalization certificate, green card, employment authorization card, I-94)
Unless you are receiving SSI, you will need to recertify. It does not depend on the points listed previously.
Your Care Manager will contact you in December to talk about Medicaid. In addition, Medicaid Recertification Packets will be sent to you by mail. Your Care Manager can help you complete this packet.
Recertification documents are time-sensitive. The due date is shown in bold on the first page of the recertification packet.
Medicaid recertification approvals are issued on the 30th day of the following month.
If a person receives SSI, they do not need to recertify.
Everyone who does not receive SSI will need to recertify.
