Medicaid redetermination for Georgians

Medicaid unwinding

Beginning April 1st, Georgia will re-start the process of checking Medicaid or PeachCare for Kids members to see if they are still eligible for their coverage. (This comes after three years of continuous Medicaid coverage protections that Congress put in place at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.)

During this time, Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids members may be asked to provide up-to-date information about themselves or their household, or to complete certain steps. To avoid losing or having gaps in coverage, it is very important to respond to these requests.
