Why Is It Important to Act Now?
To Stay in Charge of Your Healthcare Coverage.
In December 2022, the federal government passed the Omnibus Appropriations bill, officially permitting states to begin Medicaid redetermination on April l, 2023. At that time, Georgia will check who is still eligible to receive Medicaid or PeachCare for Kids@ coverage. This is called "redetermination." During this time, Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids@ members may be asked to provide more information or complete certain steps. It is very important to respond to these requests that will be sent in the mail or to your email.
Who May Be Affected?

Here's some good news: If you or your family have been receiving Medicaid or PeachCare for Kids@ benefits and haven't taken other steps, you may still have coverage'. Now is the perfect time to update your information so you can stay informed.
