What is a renewal?
A renewal is a review of your income and other information to see if you and other family members are still eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) or MinnesotaCare.
How often will I need to renew my health insurance?
Most MA and MinnesotaCare enrollees have a renewal once a year.
I have been enrolled for more than a year. Why haven't I had to renew my Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare?
To keep your health insurance during the COVID-19 emergency, most MA and MinnesotaCare renewals were stopped. Renewals are going to start again.
When will I get my renewal forms?
If you have MA, you can expect to get renewal forms about two months before the month you originally applied for health insurance. For example, if you applied in July, your MA renewal forms will be mailed to you in May. Do not worry if you don’t remember when you applied. Renewal forms will be mailed to you when it is time to renew your MA.
If you have MinnesotaCare, you can expect to get your renewal forms in October 2023.
What can I expect when it is time for my renewal?
About six weeks before mailing your renewal forms, you will receive a letter telling you how to get ready and to watch for your renewal in the mail.
When it is time for your renewal, your renewal forms and instructions will be mailed to you.
How will I get my renewal forms?
You will get your renewal forms in the mail. They will be sent to the mailing address on file for your MA or MinnesotaCare case.
