What to do now
The two most important things to do are make sure the state has updated information about you and your family, and to make sure you can access your Medicaid account online through YourTexasBenefits.com or the YTB app.
I received a yellow envelope
The state is sending a notice to 2.7 million Medicaid members that continuous coverage is ending on March 31, 2023, and that your case will need to be rechecked or redetermined. These notices are being mailed in yellow envelopes. This notice does NOT mean you have lost coverage. You will get another notice once the state starts looking at your case. It is important to update your contact information at YourTexasBenefits.com now to receive all updates.
Is my Medicaid coverage ending?
Not necessarily, but your eligibility may change. You must update your contact information now so you receive notices from the state and the state can accurately determine if you still qualify for Medicaid.
I was denied Medicaid
If you are no longer eligible for Medicaid, you might still qualify for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Healthy Texas Women, or health insurance on the Healthcare.gov Marketplace. If a child now qualifies for CHIP, the state will automatically enroll them in a CHIP plan with no extra application. Adults who no longer eligible for Medicaid will receive information about other options, such as Healthcare.gov Marketplace plans or Healthy Texas Women. It is very important to update your contact information at YourTexasBenefits.com so you can receive this information.
