SAN ANTONIO – The Texas Health and Human Services Commission’s Community Partner Program, in partnership with Feeding Texas and the San Antonio Food Bank, is hosting a community event in San Antonio to help Texans with their Medicaid renewals.

Staff will be available to assist Texans with questions or help them renew their benefits. They can also get assistance and more information about their Medicaid coverage, including how to create and manage a Your Texas Benefits account.

The federal continuous Medicaid coverage requirement ended on March 31. Texas clients may have to take action to renew their benefits, so they don’t have a gap in coverage if they are still eligible. Medicaid recipients are being notified of the end of the continuous coverage requirement in a variety of ways. When it is time to renew, HHSC staff will inform recipients by mail or electronically. HHSC is mailing all Medicaid renewal notices in a yellow envelope that says “Action Required” in red. HHSC is also sending electronic notices to recipients who have a Your Texas Benefits account and opted to go paperless.

In addition to going to a local office, visiting Your Texas Benefits, or calling 2-1-1, community events like this provide another opportunity for recipients to get the help they need. Similar community events will be held in select cities.

WHAT: Medicaid Renewal Assistance Community Event

WHEN: 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., Saturday, May 20, 2023

WHERE: San Antonio Food Bank, 5200 Historic Old Hwy. 90, San Antonio, TX
