Renew Your Benefits

Renewing Your Medicaid Coverage

Every year, Maryland Health Connection must determine if you are still eligible to receive Medicaid coverage. If you fail to renew by your coverage end date, you will no longer be able to receive Medicaid benefits and MedStar Family Choice services!

Renewing online is easy! Visit MarylandHealthConnection.gov for more information. The tutorial video below shows the step-by-step process to renew online.

  • Your address
  • Your income
  • Your household size by marriage, divorce, or children
  • Your immigration status
  • Your health insurance

Maryland Health Connection also offers a free mobile app that enables you to enroll and renew benefits.
