Keep Your Medicaid Coverage Active

IF YOU DON'T GET RECERTIFIED BY MEDICAID, YOU CAN LOSE YOUR COVERAGE UNDER CHOICE FIDA

Remember, every year you must re-apply for Medicaid coverage.

Medicaid will send you an application form within 90 days of when your Medicaid coverage will end. You will also receive a letter from CHOICE with instructions for how to renew your Medicaid coverage. If you do not receive this information, please contact Participant Services at 1-866-783-1444. It is very important that you complete this application process prior to your coverage ending.

  1. Review and complete the application form.
  2. Sign, date, and submit the application form along with any supporting document (proofs) to VNSNY CHOICE.
