Medicaid Recertification/Eligibility End Date Being Added to 270/271 Report

Date Issued: 11/1/2016

To help ensure that Medicaid members retain their coverage and don’t lose access to valuable care, the Medicaid Recertification or Eligibility End date is being added to the 270/271 report for those that are close to their recertification dates.

It’s important that you and your staff remind Medicaid members to recertify with their local Department of Social Services or the health exchange about two months prior to their Eligibility End Date. If members do not recertify by the Eligibility End Date, they will lose eligibility for Medicaid, lose their health insurance coverage and will have to reapply for Medicaid.

Members requiring assistance with recertification should contact our Marketplace Facilitated Enrollers at 1-888-432-8026.
