Renew Your Coverage

How do I renew my free or low-cost Apple Health?

You do not need to take any action to renew. Renewal processing has been delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic for the duration of the public health emergency.

  • Individuals will not lose Apple Health (Medicaid) coverage or have a decrease in benefits during the emergency unless they move out of state or request termination.
  • This includes individuals who had Apple Health as of March 18, 2020 and new enrollees.

  • Individuals should disregard termination notices dated on or after March 18, 2020 until further notice.
  • Additionally, during this time, individuals are not required to submit requested information to maintain their coverage.
