You can also contact your County Department of Job and Family Services (CDJFS). Find your local CDJFS by selecting your county from the dropdown at If your County Department of Job and Family Services (CDJS) doesn’t have your address, you may miss important letters and you could lose your coverage.

If you or someone you know has Medicaid, we recommend you respond to the request so you can be better informed and make the best decision for your health insurance future. Please respond within the time allotted – not responding could cause you to lose coverage.
