Why do I need to renew my MassHealth coverage?
When the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, the United States government declared a public health emergency. In response, MassHealth implemented protections so its members would continue to receive healthcare coverage without needing to renew. With the federal health emergency ending soon, MassHealth will return to its standard annual eligibility renewal processes.
