Submit your renewal paperwork to keep your health care insurance

Medical Assistance (Minnesota’s Medicaid program) and MinnesotaCare enrollees must have their eligibility reviewed once a year to ensure they still qualify for insurance. This process is called a renewal.

Renewals were paused during the COVID-19 pandemic, however they must restart according to federal law.

Know when to expect your eligibility renewal

Medical Assistance renewals

Renewals for Medical Assistance enrollees take place based on the anniversary month of your application for coverage.

For example, if you applied for Medical Assistance in July, you have a July Medical Assistance renewal. If you are still eligible for coverage, your renewal paperwork will need to be completed, submitted, and processed by your county or tribe by June 30 for your coverage to continue on July 1.

Renewal processes for Medical Assistance will restart in April 2023, beginning with enrollees who have a July renewal.

MinnesotaCare renewals

Renewals for MinnesotaCare coverage will restart beginning in October 2023 for coverage effective Jan. 1, 2024.

How to renew your coverage

Prepare for your renewal by updating your contact information today and gathering the appropriate paperwork in advance.

Receive and complete your renewal form

Medical Assistance enrollees will receive a pre-renewal notice in the mail about three months before the anniversary of your enrollment date (see table). You will receive a renewal form in the mail one to two months before your renewal is due. Complete and submit your renewal form with the requested proof as quickly as possible to avoid gaps in coverage.
