Medicaid Annual Renewals
restarted April 1, 2023

Alaska returned to the regular pre-pandemic process of Medicaid annual renewals on April 1, 2023. There are two steps you need to take to make sure you complete your renewal on time and stay covered:

Make sure that your contact information is up to date with the Division of Public Assistance so that important information about your coverage gets to you. This is especially important if you have moved in the past three years, or your phone number has changed.

You can update your contact information by calling our Medicaid Information Update Hotline at 833-441-1870 or with our Medicaid Information Update Form. Learn more.

Check your mail for important information about your coverage. You will receive a letter in the mail from the Division of Public Assistance sometime between April 2023 and April 2024. This letter will tell you if your coverage has been renewed, or if a response is needed. If you receive a renewal form in the mail, fill it out and return it as soon as possible. Do not throw it away!
