What Is a Medicaid Recertification Form?

By Staff WriterLast Updated Mar 26, 2020 8:30:15 PM ET

A Medicaid recertification form is a questionnaire sent to a Medicaid recipient each year that he must complete and return by a specified date to continue receiving Medicaid benefits and avoid losing coverage. Most states require Medicaid recipients to complete an annual recertification process to confirm that they remain eligible for coverage for the upcoming year. The state's Medicaid authority generally mails a recertification package containing the form 60 to 90 days before the day coverage is due to expire.
