Legal Director, Michael Brower, and Staff Attorney, Kelly McGuire presented on “Your Right to Appeal a Medicaid Termination” with The Arc of New Jersey.
The presentation shares essential strategies to protect your Medicaid coverage in preparation for the largest review of Medicaid eligibility in the state’s history.
For the first time since March 2020, the NJ Medicaid program (also known as DMAHS or NJFamilyCare) will begin terminating benefits for people who it thinks do not meet the eligibility standards. While NJ Medicaid reviewed eligibility during the pandemic, it did not terminate anyone’s benefits because of the federal COVID-19 public health emergency. Starting in April 2023, NJ Medicaid will resume mailing termination notices for people it finds ineligible for continued coverage.
If you get a termination notice and disagree, you must act fast to preserve your rights! This webinar will give you the information you need to:
- Update your address with Medicaid
- Recognize a termination notice
- Request a Fair Hearing
- Keep your benefits during an appeal
- Find legal help
