Medicaid Public Health Emergency Unwinding
DMS will begin annual renewals for Medicaid members. You may be at risk of losing Medicaid coverage if we cannot reach you. You should update your contact information as soon as possible and keep it updated so Kentucky Medicaid is able to reach you when it is your time to renew!
The renewals will resume in May, but the PHE is still in effect and therefore all the flexibilities that were put in place for providers and members remain in place. When the PHE ends on May 11, 2023, some of these flexibilities will be discontinued (or unwound) and some will continue based on state policy changes.
The Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services (DMS) will resume normal operations in alignment with federal laws in May. As part of this effort, DMS will send renewal letters to some Medicaid members beginning in early April 2023 for renewals in May 2023. When the change goes into effect some individuals may be at risk of losing Medicaid eligibility after almost three years of continuous health coverage regardless of changes in their circumstances. DMS' goal is for no one to lose coverage and coordinated efforts are underway to reach all members who will be impacted by this change.
