Helping you manage your health is important to us at the Y. That’s why we’re reaching out to make sure you're aware of some upcoming changes to Medicaid coverage with the ending of the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE). The ending of the PHE means regular renewals for Medicaid will begin as they used to before the PHE and you will need to renew your insurance when your current coverage ends. You or someone you know might be one of the 13,000 people in Onondaga County who could lose coverage, but there are some simple steps you can take to avoid this issue.
