New Outreach and Educational Resources for Partners

CMS recently released several new resources to help partners share information about Medicaid and CHIP renewals with their communities. These resources include a toolkit for clinical offices and health care settings, drop in articles, and postcards in additional languages. Each resource is posted on the Outreach and Educational Resources Page on

Patient-Centered Messaging for Clinical Office and Health Care Settings

Clinical offices and health care settings can use this toolkit to help share information about Medicaid and CHIP renewals with patients.

The toolkit includes ready-to-use resources, such as:

  • Frequently Asked Questions
  • Recorded phone/hold messages
  • No reply text messages & push notifications for patient portals
  • E-newsletter & patient portal messages

These resources can be used at office front desks, in the lobby/waiting areas, billing departments, patient portals, and other places.

Use this article for listservs, newsletters, and other outreach resources to educate people about what to do if they have been disenrolled from Medicaid or CHIP.

Postcards are also available in Ukrainian to help people get ready to renew their Medicaid or CHIP coverage.

Updated Enrollment for

Approximately 4.6 million people have selected an Affordable Care Act (ACA) Health Insurance Marketplace plan since the 2024 Marketplace Open Enrollment Period (OEP) opened on November 1. Total plan selections include 920,000 people (20% of total) who are new to the Marketplaces for 2024, and 3.7 million people (80% of total) who have active 2023 coverage and returned to their respective Marketplaces to renew their coverage or select a new plan for 2024.

Additionally, data shows strong Marketplace enrollment increases during 2023. Prior to the start of the 2024 OEP, approximately 1.5 million more people enrolled in Marketplace coverage nationwide from March to September 2023, compared to the same period in 2022. These data point to the impact of new and stronger Marketplace systems and policies on helping people access affordable, comprehensive coverage through the Marketplaces. This includes individuals who are transitioning from Medicaid coverage as states resume Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) eligibility renewals for the first time in three years following the COVID-19 pandemic. CMS continues to release separate information about Medicaid renewals and coverage transitions.
