Information for Patients about Hospital Costs
If you rely on Medicaid today, be aware requirements are changing in 2023.
In 2020, the federal government stopped requiring the annual Medicaid redetermination process in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, state Medicaid agencies have continued to pause this process.
Beginning April 2023, most states will begin the Medicaid redetermination process again, so you may need to re-apply and receive approval to continue Medicaid coverage.
If you rely on Medicaid today, now is the time to get ready for this change:
- Visit Medicaid.gov for more information and access to your state's agency website.
- Confirm your contact information (mailing address and phone number) with your state agency to make sure you receive important communication about the changes and application process.
- Respond to all Medicaid-issued notices about renewal and provide any requested documentation to verify eligibility.

If you or your spouse has had a change in employment status, you may be able to sign up for an employer-sponsored health insurance plan through your job or your spouse’s job. Check with the employer’s human resources department for more information. You also may purchase a plan through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
