[ARCHIVED] SNAP and Medicaid changes

The original item was published from June 30, 2022 to July 1, 2023 12:05 AM

Changes are coming to your monthly SNAP benefits and Medicaid benefits.

As the State and Federal Public Health Emergency declaration that was in place due to COVID-19 ends, some changes to such programs will be put in place. 

When that declaration ends, SNAP households will see a reduction in monthly benefits to the pre-pandemic amount. Medicaid members will need to complete renewals based on their renewal month to find out if they still qualify. Members need to respond to all the information requested in the renewal by the timeframes noted in the official letter.

We don’t know when this change will occur. The Federal Government will give us 60-day notice and we’ll notify you right away.
