Medicaid Renewals Dashboard:
Returning to Regular Operations

Alaska had approximately 260,000 individuals enrolled in all Medicaid programs at the beginning of the unwinding process. Prior to COVID and the public health emergency, Medicaid renewals were occurring annually. During the public health emergency—to ensure continued coverage—the federal government suspended the Medicaid renewal process. 
  • The Department of Health’s priority is to ensure that Alaskans have healthcare coverage, either through Medicaid or another more appropriate plan.
  • Recognizing the challenges faced by rural, off-the-road communities in Alaska, the state has been granted special authorization to extend the Medicaid redetermination process to an 18-month duration.

    Medicaid Renewals Monthly Snapshot. Click for full size. Data replicated in archive section at the bottom of this page.
    Monthly Snapshots Explained—As of the day it is published, this graph reports on four possible “dispositions” resulting from initiated renewal:

    • Renewed and Retained: Individuals qualified for Medicaid benefits and successfully maintained their coverage.
    • Determined Ineligible: Individuals who no longer meet the eligibility criteria for Medicaid due to factors such as exceeding the income or resource limit.  Referrals are made to the Federally Facilitated Marketplace to explore alternative affordable healthcare coverage options.
    • Procedural Disenrollments: These are situations where individuals are disenrolled because they failed to complete the renewal process. Reasons for this may include not receiving the renewal form due to outdated contact information, or failure to return the completed renewal packet or required verification within the specified timeframe.
    • Pended for Additional Information: These are renewals that were initiated but are currently in a pending status. Further work is being done to gather additional information and complete the full determination process.
