HHS Centralizes Medicaid Renewal Resources

Julie Kozminski
January 11, 2024

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) launched a new website to provide outreach and engagement resources for partners helping people with Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) renewals.

The resource hub contains communication materials and toolkits in more than seven languages from agencies across the federal government, primarily the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The hub features materials tailored to specific states; people in rural areas; various racial and ethnic communities; and those receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children benefits, among others.

The website also provides resources for those who no longer qualify for Medicaid or CHIP, guidance from several federal agencies to support renewals, and links to monthly Medicaid unwinding data.

Contact Director of Policy Rob Nelb, MPH, at rnelb@essentialhospitals.org or 202.585.0127 with questions.
