Vermonters currently enrolled in Medicaid and Dr. Dynasaur will once again see renewal notices in their mailboxes. Starting in April, we will contact Vermonters when it is time for them to renew. No one's Medicaid will simply end. Some Vermonters will have their Medicaid renewed automatically. Some Vermonters will no longer qualify for Medicaid, and they will have the opportunity to get different health coverage.
The Department of Vermont Health Access has already been reaching out to customers. We are asking them to update their contact information. We want to make sure that customers' mailing address, email address and phone numbers are correct. We want to reach out and ensure they get important information about their health coverage.
By sharing the message about Medicaid renewals, we can better support Vermonters through this change. Can you spread the word to your patients, as well as you friends, family and neighbors? If you share the message on this page, you can help more Vermonters stay covered by health insurance. Keep checking back for more materials to share.
This toolkit consists of:
- A Medicaid Renewal Overview and Sample Drop-in Articles
- Medicaid Renewal Handouts, Posters and Flyers
- Sample social media posts
- Virtual Town Hall presentation
- More about Health Insurance
