Georgia Medicaid Disenrollment

Since the public health emergency (PHE) ended in April 2023, states’ Medicaid redetermination processes have changed, leaving millions of Americans uninsured.

Among the states that have experienced vast coverage loss, including Texas, Florida, Arkansas, South Dakota, Idaho, and New Hampshire, Georgia was recently ranked the third worst for pediatric Medicaid loss. Currently, 700,000 Georgian residents have been disenrolled in their health plans, leaving many without coverage for medical expenses and incontinence supplies.

What to Do If You’ve Lost Medicaid Coverage

If you’re one of the 700,000 individuals who have lost Medicaid health insurance due to the PHE-era regulations unwinding, there are steps you can take to get your coverage back!

  1. Update your contact and address information through Georgia’s Medicaid office. 
  2. Re-enroll for Medicaid or CHIP on Georgia’s Medicaid website or by contacting the Georgia state Medicaid office call center at 404-657-5468.
  3. Submit your re-enrollment information and wait for the redetermination process to be completed. Contact your Medicaid office to find out how long this process will take.
  4. If you are still denied Medicaid coverage after re-enrolling, you can appeal the decision or look for other coverage options in the Healthcare Marketplace.

Once you have re-enrolled in Medicaid health care coverage, call Aeroflow Urology to let our Continence Care Specialists know your coverage has been re-activated.

To start receiving free incontinence products again, you’ll need to provide us with your new Medicaid or CHIP ID number (if you’ve been assigned one–  look for this on your new insurance card). 

It may also be helpful to visit your healthcare provider when you are re-enrolled to ensure your incontinence prescription is current.
