Renew Coverage / Report a Change

Renewing Coverage

Medicaid renewals have been paused during the COVID 19 emergency. You will not lose coverage if you do not renew at this time.

Health coverage from Virginia Medicaid needs to be renewed each year. This is called an annual renewal. If your local department of social services has all of the information needed to complete your renewal, this process will be done automatically. You will receive a notice in the mail telling you if your coverage will continue for another year.

If your renewal cannot be completed automatically, you will receive a paper renewal form in the mail. This means you must take action to renew your health coverage.

Visit for instructions on how to renew your coverage in faster, easier ways.
