ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland officials have announced a public awareness campaign to remind Medicaid recipients to renew their coverage.

That’s because the federal government is reinstating a requirement that existed before the COVID-19 pandemic for states to verify eligibility. Maryland officials made the announcement at a bilingual news conference in front of the Maryland State House on Thursday. It came on the same day that the nation’s COVID-19 health emergency was ending.

Officials are calling it a “Medicaid Check-in” for the nearly 1.8 million Medicaid participants in the state during what’s known as the redetermination period, which began in April and runs through May 2024.
