Moratorium on Medicaid Terminations Scheduled to End on April 1, 2023
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act, signed into law on March 18, 2020, barred all Medicaid terminations during the course of the public health emergency caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2023, an omnibus spending bill signed into law by President Biden on December 29, 2022, States are now required to resume Medicaid eligibility processes beginning April 1, 2023.
What does this mean for you?
- Review all bank, life insurance, and other financial records to ensure your countable assets do not exceed $2,000 by the close of business on March 31, 2023.
- Confirm your mailing address, phone number, and email address with the Medicaid agency by calling 1-800-701-0710 (TTY: 711).
- Check your standard and electronic mail regularly.
- Respond to correspondence from the State of New Jersey or your Medicaid determination agency (i.e., County Board of Social Services or Regional Office of the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities).
- Submit responses to all requests for information before the due date to avoid a gap in your Medicaid coverage.
