Important Changes Are Coming Soon to New York Medicaid, Child Health Plus and the Essential Plan!
Urban Health Plan wants to help keep you covered!
Starting in Spring 2023, New York State will restart eligibility verifications to make sure enrollees still qualify for Medicaid, Child Health Plus and the Essential Plan.
This means you may need to take action to renew your health insurance or your family’s insurance!
How will you know if these changes affect you?
When it is your turn to renew your benefits, you will receive a letter from NY State of Health or a renewal packet if you enrolled through a Medicaid office. This letter/packet will let you know what you need to do to renew your coverage and how much time you have to respond.
Here is what you should do now!
