Learn more about Medicaid renewal unwinding

Rhode Island is conducting renewals of all Medicaid members as part of the post-pandemic "Return to Normal Operations." The Protect Our Healthcare Coalition has prepared materials to help Medicaid enrollees and the network of community helpers understand the renewal process and take timely steps to complete renewal. Explore the materials listed below for additional help and resources.

NEW! Fact Sheet Available

Fact sheet available in Spanish and English targeted to families in which some members are not citizens. We are concerned that these families may be reluctant to renew or apply for Medicaid coverage because of the "chilling effect" of Trump-era policies that made immigrants fearful of applying for public benefits due to public charge concerns. In addition, language barriers may hinder completing Medicaid renewal.

NEW DHS Office

The new DHS Office has opened at 1 Holden Street in Providence. It houses a scanning center where people can have their renewal forms and related documents scanned into the system. This is a very safe and effective way to ensure that DHS receives renewal materials in a timely way.

We have updated the Protect Our Healthcare Coalition's Helper's Handbook to Medicaid Renewals and the Appeals Fact Sheet to include the information about this new site.
