Medicaid Redetermination Resources

February 13, 2023

In late 2022, Congress passed a bill that separated the Medicaid continuous eligibility requirement from the Public Health Emergency enacted early in the pandemic.  As the enhanced federal support for Medicaid to the states winds down and the continuous coverage requirement ends, states may begin the redetermination process on April 1, 2023.  The following are resources pages for those working to ensure continuous coverage for vulnerable populations:

  • Missouri Department of Social Services ( has more information and the ability to renew online and/or update contact information to be notified when it is time to renew.  They have also created outreach materials for agencies to distribute (flyers, social media posts, graphics, etc.).   

  • Missouri Foundation for Health has created a Missouri Medicaid Basics publication (16 pages) plus At-A-Glance factsheet (2 pages) to help the community better understand the impact of Medicaid expansion and become familiar with the various components of Medicaid in Missouri.  

  • Nationally, the Catholic Health Association has created the “Protect What’s Precious Toolkit” geared towards front line staff (case managers, community health workers, etc.) who interact with patients and their families.  Talking points, posters/postcards which can be rebranded with an agency logo, short videos, and past webinars are all available (some in Spanish as well).  They have an ongoing “Medicaid Makes it Possible” campaign where you can sign up to receive alerts as well.

  • Locally, the Regional Health Commission is leading the collaborative Cover STL which features a step-by-step application video, in-person application assistance map, tip sheets on using your Medicaid plan, information on current application wait times, and a resource library.

  • In Illinois, the Department of Healthcare and Family Services (HFS) has a page regarding HealthChoise Illinois Medicaid renewal/redetermination, which can also be completed online.  Illinois has sought federal approval to approve continuous coverage for all adults on Medicaid for 12 months as well as extend postpartum coverage from 60 days to 12 months.

Together, we can advance human dignity and promote the common good by amplifying key messages to prevent Medicaid and CHIP coverage loss for our most vulnerable neighbors.
