Medicaid and PeachCare Kids redetermination period ending; Restoring the Breach can help

Health Alert: Community members who have been receiving Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids benefits must update their eligibility by the end of the month. Restoring the Breach is holding open office hours to help you with the process on Thursday, May 23, and Thursday, May 30.

Medicaid redetermination, the process that the state uses to verify eligibility for Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids, is coming to a close at the end of May. Ensuring that your family's eligibility is up to date is the only way to continue receiving benefits, without having to start the process over. 

If this impacts you, Restoring the Breach, a local nonprofit organization, is here to help.

"Community members will lose coverage at the end of the month if they haven't renewed their eligibility," says LaShai Campbell, Restoring the Breach's executive director. 

If you’re one of the nearly 2.7 million Georgians who have Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids®, be sure to update your contact information to stay in charge of your healthcare coverage on Georgia Gateway. Learn how at

What is Medicaid redetermination?

Based on changes in federal law, this is the process that the State of Georgia must complete over the next 14 months to make sure current Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® members are still eligible for coverage.

During redetermination, the State of Georgia will collect and verify member information, including contact and income details as well as other requested information and documents that will be used to determine your eligibility.

Not everyone will go through this process at the same time. In fact, it will take about 14 months to reach everyone. Visit to view your redetermination date and to update your contact information today so you can stay informed about the status of your coverage.
