HHSC to Help Texans with Medicaid Renewals at San Antonio Community Event

SAN ANTONIO – The Texas Health and Human Services Commission Community Partner Program, in partnership with San Antonio Food Bank, is hosting a community event on Saturday, Aug. 12, to help Texans with their Medicaid renewals.

HHSC staff will be available to answer any questions related to the federal continuous Medicaid coverage requirement that ended on March 31. Individuals can also get assistance and more information about their Medicaid coverage, including how to create and manage a Your Texas Benefits account.

Texas clients with Medicaid coverage may have to take action to renew their benefits and avoid a gap in coverage. HHSC staff will inform recipients by mail or electronically when it is time to renew. Medicaid renewal notices will be mailed in a yellow envelope with “Action Required” printed in red, and electronic notices will be sent 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.

The San Antonio Food Bank is providing a limited amount of school supplies at the event.
