Medicaid Annual Renewals to Restart April 1, 2023
In March 2020, Louisiana Medicaid changed some of its eligibility rules in response to the federal COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). This included stopping closures for most Louisiana Medicaid members.
Starting in April, Louisiana Medicaid must re-start eligibility reviews and close anyone who is not eligible. Eligibility reviews are also called renewals. Not everyone will renew at the same time. It will take 12 months to renew all Medicaid members.
Louisiana Medicaid is able to complete some renewals without contacting the member. This is achieved through access to other electronic databases. Many renewals, however, will require members to respond to mail from Louisiana Medicaid.
