Medicaid recipients in Erie County will soon be receiving notices about a new way to renew their coverage. 

According to county officials, these notices will come from New York State of Health and will inform recipients that "You and/or members of your household need to renew your coverage through NY State of Health." 

These letters will also describe the steps recipients need to take to continue their health coverage.  Failure to act will result in the loss of health insurance after Medicaid ends.

Anyone with questions should contact, 1-855-355-5777.  Letters from New York State of Health will go out monthly until February of 2019.
