Medicaid redetermination in Illinois is the process by which the state's Medicaid program evaluates an individual's eligibility for continued enrollment in the program. This process is required by federal law and is designed to ensure that only those who meet the program's eligibility criteria receive benefits. During the redetermination process, individuals must provide updated information about their income, assets, and other factors affecting their eligibility. If an individual's circumstances have changed and they are no longer eligible for Medicaid, they may be required to transition to a different health insurance program. Individuals must respond to redetermination notices promptly and provide all requested information to avoid losing their Medicaid coverage.
