Medicaid Redetermination Has Started
On April 1, 2023, the state of Georgia must redetermine eligibility for all people who currently receive Medicaid or PeachCare for Kids® coverage.
We have created a website – staycovered.ga.gov – that will be regularly updated with important news and resources.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. Congress passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) in March 2020. Under the FFCRA, Georgia Medicaid members have been eligible for continuous coverage during the federal public health emergency (PHE).
In December 2022, the federal government passed a federal spending bill that permits states to begin Medicaid redetermination on April 1, 2023, regardless of the PHE end date. At that time, Georgia will be required to redetermine eligibility for approximately 2.7 million Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® members.
Georgia Medicaid recipients can take action now. Through their Gateway account, they should make sure that their information is up-to-date, including phone number, address, job or income, and number of people in their household. Recipients are also encouraged to select "Email" notifications for the fastest alerts.
