Medicaid Recertification

Keep Your Medicaid Benefits Intact

Medicaid benefits support many of the disability services provided by ACANY, including Care Management. To ensure you continue to receive Medicaid benefits, it is important that accurate information is relayed to Medicaid.

Changes in address, income, source of income, and amount of resources may require you to recertify. In addition, many people who receive Medicaid will need to recertify due to ending of the public health emergency (PHE) that was in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Your Care Manager will help you with Medicaid Recertification.
