In March 2020, the federal government declared a public health emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, in response to federal requirements, MassHealth put protections in place that prevented members’ MassHealth coverage from ending. These protections are ending and MassHealth will soon return to the standard annual eligibility renewal process. In the coming year, all current MassHealth members will need to renew their health coverage to ensure that they still qualify for their current benefit.
Starting April 1, 2023, all current MassHealth members will need to renew their health coverage.

These renewals will take place over 12 months. In order to reduce the number of qualified members that lose their coverage, MassHealth is working with the Massachusetts Health Connector, Health Care For All, and other partners to make sure members know how to renew their coverage and are aware of other affordable health coverage options if needed.
Renewals will begin in April, and we will reach out then with more resources, as well as dates for webinars and learning events that your staff can attend to learn how they can do more to assist our community during renewals. You can learn more about this effort on this website – MassHealth Eligibility Redeterminations https://www.mass.gov/masshealth-eligibility-redeterminations.
