It is time to review Medicaid/Hawki eligibility for you or someone in your household. Your household should have received or will be receiving an annual Medicaid/Hawki review form in the mail. Make sure that you complete and return the review form and all of the requested information in a timely manner, so it can be determined if you or someone in your household will continue to receive Medicaid at the end of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Failure to provide the form may cause a disruption to Medicaid/Hawki benefits when the COVID-19 public health emergency ends. If you have questions, call the DHS Contact Center at 1-855-889-7985.
