Do you or your child get health coverage through the state? Federal pandemic policies around Medicaid ended on April 1, 2023, and now you must complete a renewal every year to make sure you are still eligible for Medicaid coverage.

Join the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services and Pennie, PA’s official health insurance marketplace for Stay Covered PA, a special program about Medicaid renewals. A live webchat will also be hosted on this page from 7pm to 8pm. Scroll down to ask your questions!

Department of Human Services Secretary Dr. Val Arkoosh and Pennie Executive Director Devon Trolley joined us to talk about how to renew your coverage, steps you can take right now to get ready for your renewal, and how Pennie can help if you or your child are no longer eligible for Medicaid. We also will answer your questions about Medicaid renewals in a live chat during the program.
