Good afternoon, everyone!

We have some crucial information to share with you regarding changes to Medicaid and SNAP eligibility requirements. We want to make sure that everyone in our community who receives these benefits is well-informed. So, we're reaching out to you, our valued community members, to help spread the word!

Here are the key highlights you need to know:

1️⃣ Continuous coverage without active renewal or eligibility determination was provided during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

2️⃣ Exciting news! The 2023 Omnibus Appropriations bill has eliminated continuous enrollment requirements.

3️⃣ The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD) will notify all Medicaid and SNAP customers when it's time to renew their eligibility.

💡 Bottom line: If you're a Medicaid or SNAP customer, it's crucial that you renew your eligibility, or you may risk losing your benefits!

But that's not all. We also want to highlight how this affects the Medicaid School-Based Services (MSBS) Program, which enables participating school districts to bill the Federal Medicaid system for services provided to Special Education students within the school setting.

Our dedicated SWREC Medicaid Team wants to be proactive in getting this important information out. We aim to ensure that schools don't experience a drastic reduction in their Medicaid revenue and that our community members maintain their benefits. For this reason, we kindly ask for your help in spreading the word.

We've attached some flyers from a toolkit provided to us during a recent meeting hosted by the Sivic Solutions Group (SSG). Please take a moment to review these attachments and choose the ones that you think would work best for your schools. Share them with other community-based organizations, hospitals, clinics, media outlets, and anyone else who can help us get the message out there!
