Keep your Medicaid
information updated

Make sure you complete the Medicaid eligibility recertification process on time to avoid losing your benefits.

What you should know about the Medicaid recertification process

What is it?

  • This is how Vital Plan and Medicare Platinum Plan beneficiaries can review or update their proof of eligibility for Medicaid.
  • If Medicaid does not automatically recertify you, you will receive a Recertification Notice in the mail along with a Recertification Form for you to complete.

When should I complete it?

  • Once you receive the notice, you must complete the process within the period specified by Medicaid, not before or after..
  • If you have not received the notice, contact the Medicaid office to make sure they have your correct contact information.

What do I do if my recertification period has expired, and the Medicaid Office cancels my plan coverage?

  • If you didnt complete the process by the deadline Medicaid sent you, you can retroactively enroll by completing your application within the next 120 days of your deadline..
  • However, during these 120 days, you will not have medical plan coverage, and you will not be able to receive your health benefits through the Vital Plan.
  • You can retroactively complete your application through the same methods as the regular process.
