If you have Medicaid, it may be time to reapply for your benefits. Right now, almost 1.8 million Maryland Medicaid participants are at risk of losing their benefits. This may include you.

Here’s what you need to do to renew your coverage.

Why Would You Suddenly Lose Your Medicaid Benefits?

Starting in March 2020, states were unable to end your Medicaid coverage. This is because a public health emergency (PHE) was put in place due to COVID-19. During a PHE, you were able to  keep your Medicaid benefits without renewing them.

The PHE ended on May 11, 2023. This means that you  may need to reapply for your Medicaid benefits to avoid losing them.

Your health coverage will stop if you do not renew your Medicaid benefits. You may have problems getting health care and paying for it. This can leave you without the health care you need, especially if you have a complex or chronic condition.

What Is Medicaid Redetermination?

Medicaid redetermination refers to the process of reapplying for Medicaid. It means reestablishing your Medicaid eligibility. This may allow you to keep your benefits.

How will I know when it is my turn to complete the Medicaid Redetermination process? 

A staff member from Jai Medical Systems (JMS) will contact you if you need to reapply. We may contact you by phone, text message, email, and/or mail.

For us to reach you, your contact information must be up to date. You can update your contact information at https://jaimedicalsystems.com/. Or, you can call our Customer Service Department at 1-888-524-1999.
