Medical Assistance (MA) and Medicare Savings Program (MSP) automatic renewal

Español | Lus Hmoob | Af Soomaali | Tiếng Việt | Pусский

If you are enrolled in MA for People Who Are Age 65 or Older or People Who Are Blind or Have a Disability (MA-ABD), or if you have a Medicare Savings Programs (MSP), you may be able to have your coverage renewed without any action needed from you.

How an automatic renewal works

Your county or tribal agency will renew your MA or MSP if they have the needed income and asset information from electronic data sources  to confirm that you still qualify. You can find program income and asset guidelines (DHS-3461A) (PDF) online.

If your MA or MSP is renewed, we will send you a notice about your renewal and MA or MSP coverage. The notice will explain why your coverage was renewed. 

Example of what a portion of your notice will look like:

How to read your notice

Review your automatic renewal details in the notice we sent to you. These details could include:

  • Your name
  • Your address
  • Your household size
  • Your income amount or source (earned or unearned)
  • Your medical spenddown or long-term care benefit amount, if any

If all the information on the notice is correct: You do not need to take any action.

If any information on your notice is wrong: Contact your worker listed in the notice to report a change within 10 days.

What happens if my MA cannot be automatically renewed?

If your county or tribal agency cannot renew your MA or MSP based on information from electronic data sources, we will send you a health care renewal form in the mail. Complete your renewal on time to avoid a gap in coverage. You can learn more about that process on the Renew my coverage webpage.
