Spread the Word: Families Enrolled in Medicaid Must Report Changes of Address

By | 2016-07-25T16:45:50+00:00 July 25th, 2016|Blog, Health|

icon_healthAs child advocates, we want to help make sure families enrolled in Medicaid are aware they need to keep their addresses up to date with the Department for Medicaid Services (DMS). If a family’s address has recently changed, they must update their address with DMS by August 18th. If DMS receives any returned mail from an address that is not current, members could lose health coverage. If an address appears incorrect, the member will have the remainder of that month plus another month to update the address.

If you have Medicaid and have recently moved, please update your address with DMS. If you help people sign up for Medicaid or work with Medicaid members — including healthcare providers, school resource centers, or community resource representatives — please encourage members to update their addresses. You can help them fill out and submit their new address with a form created by DMS.

A member can mail or fax this form to DMS. Please note that anyone can assist a Medicaid member in completing this form, but it does require the signature of the member or their authorized representative.

Other Ways to Update an Address

  1. Members can visit or call their local DCBS office.
  2. If a member has Medicaid through Supplemental Security Income (SSI), they need to update their information by visiting their local Social Security office or calling 1-800-772-1213.
