Georgia is required as of April 2023 to re-evaluate every individual on Medicaid that​has not been evaluated since the beginning of the pandemic in 2020.

If you are on Medicaid, you should take the following steps:

2. Have all paperwork related to income changes, such as social security benefits or job changes when DFCS contact you.

3. Respond right away if DFCS contacts you by phone or mail.

4. Contact Atlanta Legal Aid immediately if you receive a notice that you are being kicked off Medicaid. You can appeal a Medicaid decision within 10 days. Legal Aid may be able to assist you.

If you have questions, you can leave a voicemail with the Disability Integration Project of Atlanta Legal Aid at 404-377-0707.
