If you don’t have a MIBridges account, you will need to create one by selecting “Register.”  Once you’re in your own account, make sure to put all of your information in correctly. If you have to go back in and change something, put the changes in both the Profile section and the Report Changes section. 

What you need to know about your Medicaid renewal:

  • You may have to fill out a new Medicaid renewal form every year to keep coverage.
  • If you receive the renewal form, you must complete it.
  • You will be asked to provide an update each time you renew about your income or immigration status because it could change from year to year.
  • Your Medicaid coverage could be closed if you provide incomplete information on the renewal form.
