BISMARCK, ND (KXNET) — If you’re on Medicaid and you get a particular letter in the mail from North Dakota Health and Human Services requiring action on your part, take the action — it’s not spam.

Since April, North Dakota HHS has started regular Medicaid renewal updates for people whose coverage was temporarily extended due to the COVID-19 public health emergency to make sure they still qualify.

That means that some Medicaid members may lose their coverage if they don’t certain steps.

One of those is a letter from the state, asking you to complete some paperwork and returning the papers within 30 days.

If you receive such a letter and form and don’t fill it out and return it, North Dakota HHS says, otherwise, you will lose your Medicaid coverage even if you still qualify.
