Q:

How do you find out if your Medicaid is still active?

A:

Quick Answer

According to the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, people who want to find out if their Medicaid is active can check the status through their state's benefits website, or they can call their county's social services department. Generally, Medicaid insurance stays active as long as they continue to meet the requirements for their state, including income limits. Changes in income can make a person ineligible for continued Medicaid coverage.
